Okay, that suggests the option 1 approach, as that way we can easily see 
which numbers we have already allocated, and allows us to easily keep 
track of MEP numbers while they still exist only in PR form.  I just 
want to avoid numbering clashes later.

If we agree on this, I can go through the wiki and get rid of the MEP 
specific pages there, replacing them with a list there, something like:
MEP xx <short description> *Discussion*:
     <Link to PR>
MEP xx <short description> *Progress*
     <Link to main site (falling back to te file on github if not 
updated yet)>
