The WG cannot go into detailed analysis, it wold require a consulting firm.
This is what the Public comment period should be for, to have anybosy who
feels affected publically express their concerns.

This two issues are, again important, and the more complete a proposal is,
the more possibilities it has to be accepted, but we should also allow
points of view to be expressed without implementation plans, otherwise we
may be cutting away ideas that might be of interest.

We don't need to make this mandatory, but recommend that it be done, to
show support for the proposal.
In short, I would post these as recommendations for those who wish to make
proposals, but without making them mandatory.
