It sounds like what we need is a FESCo policy in that case.

However you're going to have to help me out here, because I can't find
any FESCo "policy pages" except for one about elections and other
about package maintainers.  I'm quite probably looking in entirely the
wrong place.  This was my Google search:

http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=site%3Afedoraproject.org+fesco+policy

[I just found another one on about new Features]

What are the steps I should take to propose a policy?  I already
created a trac ticket:
