I think other projects use issue trackers for these sorts of topics (rather than mailing lists) primarily for the ability to capture summaries, allow searching, capture relationships (duplicates ,etc), and indicate something is deferred to a particular milestone (say swift 4 phase 2). 

Not to segue the mailing list vs forum discussion again.

Why aren't they captured in a better format than the mailing list archive? If you don't want to be distracted by future things then capture them as proposals but file them out of the way a bit so that people can see they exist - I would have thought this would decrease distractions from people bringing them up again.
