The council approves specific proposals, ideally including 
implementations, that have been discussed by the broader Gentoo 
community. I don't see us as a group of people who should be exclusively 
discussing something like this during a meeting instead of with the rest 
of the community on the -dev mailing list.

To me, this looks like something that would involve a GLEP.

From the point of view of why I ran for council, this fits under the 
idea of problems related to individual people or instances rather than 
broader patterns that need to get dealt with by council policy.
