This is the glory of open source projects -- if you have a great idea, you
can simply do it:
- Start a document that describes Python's Core design principles
- Put it up somewhere (gitHub would be good) where others can contribute to
- If it becomes a wonderful thing, then propose that it be published
somewhere "official" -- as a meta-PEP or whatever.
(you can do something similar with a package that you may think should be
in the stdlib, or a proposal that you might think should be a PEP, or...)
In short, you don't need approval for an idea ahead of time -- if you
demonstrate its worth, then it may be included later. If not, then maybe it
wasn't a great idea, or it is a great idea that can live on outside the
