Yeah, I hope we'll get an "out of scope" section when we move to discourse... That way the core team and others who are busy can focus on what's practical for the next release, and those of us who have ideas that are a bit premature will have a place to discuss and refine them (and one where we don't have to spend an hour or so combing through our social media history just to find it).

Either way, though, I think restricting ourselves to a set of "in-scope" topics is likely about the only way we'll be able to collectively stay focused enough to get anything done.
