Yes, certain features have different implementation possibilities. 
Sometimes this information is coverd in TODO.detail, but often it is
not.

I assume your point is that once a patch appears, it is harder to argue
to change the implementation than if they had asked for a discussion
first.

I guess the only thing I can say is that we shouldn't feel bad about
asking more questions and opening up implementation issues, even if a
patch has already been prepared.  I should give a larger delay for
applying those patches so people can ask more questions and bring up
implementation issues.
