This makes sense to me - the original idea can come from anyone, but
unless there is support by dev(s) that can maintain the package
manager(s) and are willing to implement the proposed change, these
ideas won't go anywhere anyways. Council can't make anything be
implemented, after all. Also, if there is a working test
implementation when the vote happens then it's a fairly quick process
to full implementation once the EAPI is approved.
