yes. this talking about formation of somewhat a standardization gremium within some years etc. is not the task.
There is enough base material. There are guys who have an overview of what is good. There are guys who know the details.
A decision call from the inner circle for an actual (probably joint) implementation is necessary.

Regarding the python-on..-"framework" the greatest danger would be, to make it too big. ( its not about full replacement of the existing big packages )
