[Council] JEP inactivity period?

First, I have personally received a number of complaints from people 
looking at the list, and not finding some JEP because of the new 
defaults.  Is there a particular motivation for showing the Experimental 
JEPs by default that I'm not aware of?

Secondly, I do object to automatically moving JEPs to deferred.  I would 
rather have the authors notified (preferably at least a day, if not 
more) before such a change, and possibly even the council.
