I'm the one who made the most recent big proposals[1][2]. The reason why
they "fizzled out" was a combination of a several things:

- The pre-RFCs were submitted around the time when the RFC process was
changed. Originally, pre-RFCs were supposed to be reviewed and approved
or rejected by the PSC, but apparently you now have to ask them to do

- There was some opposition to the tables proposal.

- I got busy and I had less time and energy to pursue the proposal.
