Justin -

Why should the council "sponsor" be responsible for "marshalling" support
for a JEP they didn't author?? The idea of a sponsor was for that person to
act as a 'conduit' for council <-> members communication, and to marshall
support and gather concerns & issues from the _council_, not the entire JSF

Believe it or not, the council already does quite a bit of work... I'm not
sure any of us want to take on this additional role. I do like have the JEP
Editor be involved via this process though. I'd modify the flow to:

1. Author consults w/ JEP editor about going fwd.
2. JEP editor says ok & requests sponsor from council via the council
mailing list.
3. Author & Sponsor consult about any initial issues, and (hopefully) decide
to proceed.
4. Author rounds up 5% of JSF members to second the last call.
