You really need to address this question to Chris. It is up to him how he
wants to structure his proposal to the committee.

But the usual practice is to put all interdependent components into the same
proposal, even if the components are logically separated. Otherwise in a
committee environment, you run the risk of the infrastructure items getting
approved but the stuff actually useful to end-uses not getting approved, or
visa versa.

That's why the filesystem proposal, for example, included some changes to
the diagnostics clause.
