Well that is always a good idea but:

The problem you are having is that sense many people do not see a 
benefit it is hard
to garner the feedback, thus the fallback to submit a patch.

If you submit a patch there is a chance that people will see the benefit 
within a simple
implementation and THEN you get the feedback you want.
