Of course they should weigh in, and I am hoping that will all be 
co-sponsors of this proposal. But the existing module structure is very 
code focused, and most of this proposal deals with issues outside of 
that. Yes in theory the module system can be used for non-code 
functions, but the current structures are very much biased against 
contributors who are not core developers.

I would hope that the current Mozilla Thunderbird staff, including some 
who have been asked to do their former MoMo jobs with 5% of their time, 
would be the first to recognize that they have been given an impossible 
job to do with the limited resources available, so a fresh approach is 
needed for their own sanity.
