That's not how it works. I don't need to give you the proof, you're the one
wishing to propose something. You need to prove that it has a viable
rationale, and that it's worth more time being spent on it. This
proposal doesn't and isn't
, so when people who would actually deal with a proposal in the
committee tell you that it doesn't convince
them, perhaps you should pay heed.

That's not correct, there's plenty of language proposals that fit right
in, and they do not receive such reactions.
