I also agree w/ the comments previously expressed by temas & LW.. The process of
mandating some "backing" and technical thought seems to be fine requirements for
getting a JEP number. I agree, that these JEP's that come out of (seemingly)
no-where often are suspect and need some time to be fleshed out. I also agree
that this is what the wiki is for.

I'm wondering if these vague requirements are sufficient, or is the community
going to need/want something more quantitative?
