Oh. I suppose there's only one answer to that.

It's listed as needing expert review. I'm supposed to be an expert,
and I know all the other experts, and have access to all of the easily
accessible user community.
There's a conference in August 2009 (3rd Intl Conf on Tolkien's
Languages) which would be an obvious place to have a group of
representative experts/users back a (maybe revised) proposal.
If Michael's willing, I could take it upon myself to look at the
proposal again, see if it needs anything added, get the relevant
experts involved, and get some user input.
