The reason I ask is that working to implement something presumes that
there's consensus on what should be implemented. I don't want to find
myself in the position of committing serious effort to a task which has
been eclipsed by events.

Historically, Boost Tooling has been developed in just this way.
Someone with access just implements something and drops on the rest of
us. I think that this practice is one of the reasons that we've been
frustrated with boost tooling in general. My proposal is/was an attempt
to break this cycle by approaching from a different angle - inspired by
Boosts success in other aspects - motivating the creating of quality C++
