Oh - to the first half of your statement, I don't think it's a bad idea to
filter the suggestions through a few key mentors who can track proposals
through the spec committee.  The bottom line is that the fruits of these
ideas come from an ASL licensed code base by 'some member' who contributed
to the implementation.  So ... it's very important to know that dev@ spec
discussion will be usable by the spec committee when pushed that direction
by the spec liasons, from the ASF or any participating company.

That's not necessarily something to postpone until incubation; from the day
the dev@ list is created, you will begin to collect ideas on the dev@ list.
