I sign, but have no problem at all if people don't. For me it is not necessary
to require it.

I think indeed a solution proposal should go through the desktop lead. I do
however see no need if we decide that a problem is not really a problem at
all, so it should come somewhere near the place where we choose a solution
that is to be implemented. Maybe give some notice beforehand to get
confirmation that the destop lead indeed finds it a problem worthy of

There are ideas floating around to do this distro wide. However if no-one
pushes for it, it will happen "sometime".

Ok, I agree. This also automatically gives the desktop lead a place.
