This list generally is not a bad place for discussing design issues.
Latency can sometimes be a bit high, but it's a reasonable place to start.

Here is fine, though since we're in code freeze it might be worth also
putting it on launchpad so it doesn't get lost. Since it's here, though
I might say:
* please format the commit message so that linebreaks happen;
* I would avoid "should" and language with implied value judgment. A
neutral way of communicating the information would be better (e.g. "The
datum X (of type Y) is not of type Z")
* an entry in NEWS, formatted appropriately, would also be helpful.
(entries in NEWS are almost guaranteed to conflict, though, so I'm not
totally sure what to recommend as best practice).
