Same advice applies.

If you want your "more elaborate review system" to come
into being to benefit that diaspora, and if you want it to
be available in Emacs itself or to affect anything that is
distributed with GNU Emacs, then `M-x report-emacs-bug' is
the best way to communicate your suggestion about it.

Your suggestion can include code, of course, if you have
some to offer for this.

And if you want that but you have nothing concrete or
specific to request or offer now, and you want to invite
discussion about your incipient idea that might eventually
lead to something real, you can open a thread to discuss
it on address@hidden, the Emacs development list.

In short, such developments do not fall from the sky.
If you want to affect GNU Emacs then my advice is to
contact those who develop and maintain it.

All of this applies *IF* you care about affecting vanilla
Emacs - see that qualification in the first line you quoted,
above.
