This is how it's going to go down.

Board (you?): "FESCo, Go mandate policies on cross-compiling"

FESCo: "Ok.  We need a packaging guideline.  FPC, go make the packaging
guidelines for cross-compiling toolchains."

FPC: "Crap.  Add that to the end of the queue."

<time passes>

FPC: "Here is your guideline for cross-compiling"

FESCo: "Thanks.  Approved."

Now, if you (or the Board) _really_ want to make good progress on this
issue and you care about it enough then there is nothing preventing
_anyone_ from writing up those guidelines _right now_.

I understand the Board is not meant to be a technical design and
implementation body.  I get that it's purpose is broader than that.
However, if there are issues that the Board thinks need attention, then
damnit make a proposal.

I know for a fact that the people on the Board are more than capable of
thinking hard about this.  And you apparently have already done so.  At
the very least disclose the discussion you had that made you feel so
confident that cross-compiling could be accomplished.
