Release Notes Proposals

I'm thinking about the thing I first heard of at Amazon. They have a thing where they write a press release for a new project or feature before working on it. They use that as a way to focus the discussion on it and clarify how things should work before making a decision to implement it or not.

I really like that idea. Except, instead of press releases, it'll be release notes. That'll help in the same way while also helping ensure the release notes are solid.
