This is more for after Mageia 1 release. Hopefully, we will have
plenty of topics such as this one, that will be discussed/improved
during the Summer.

You won't please everybody anyway. So prototype something
working/square enough for evaluation, with constraints/rules you find
(or even better, find an existing solution - there must be some
already existing). That suppose that the need is properly defined,
written down first (part of it is "what is not satisfying currently"
and "how can this be done within Mageia infrastructure").
