While it shouldn’t be verboten to explore an area in the future, anyone doing so can reasonably be expected to read the previous discussions and only reopen it if there is new information or a new idea.

I think it’s a good idea, which we can incorporate in the swift-evolution repository. My main concern is that I (personally), and the core team in general, probably won’t be able to proactively maintain such a list. We’d happily accept pull requests to help keep the list up-to-date and (as it grows longer) give it some organization.
