I like this idea, but I think this can be done as a PR, which seems a better fit for collaborative building. The author can specify that a proposal is a "pre-proposal", with the goal of fleshing it out before committee submission. If it becomes necessary, we can furnish a tag to label these, but I'm honestly not sure we'll need to.

I'd like to propose that we open up the GitHub issues tracker for ghc-proposals to serve as a place to discuss pre-proposal ideas. Once those discussions converge on one or a few specific plans, someone can write a proper proposal.
