>>> It’s just hard to tell what that is with several people involved.  Any recommendations on how to handle this when writing a proposal? 
>> I don't think you'd know for real until it got to review. This list is high enough traffic that there are probably a lot of people who don't read the drafts, including members of the core team. :-/
> Sure.  But it might be nice to be able to write a proposal “modulo syntax”.  We need placeholder syntax of course, but in many cases it might be best to allow that to be hashed out during review with the core team deciding on the final details if the proposal is accepted.  There have been several cases where this seems like an appropriate way to handle things.  What do you think?

I like to use the worst syntax I can think of that's still immediately clear: ☃ for operators, @precise_ugly_name for attributes, etc. :-)
