There's nothing to stop you writing an RFC on whatever you like :)
However, there's nothing making anyone implement or follow the
guidelines you set out, so an RFC phrased as yours is will probably not
actually go anywhere.

More useful might be an "approach" type RFC saying "Perl 6 should take
this approach", and referring to RFCs which you believe are related by
merit of following that approach :)
