Why is there such a high bar to getting a number assigned to a BIP anyway? BIP 
1 seems to suggest that getting a BIP number assigned is no big deal, but the 
reality seems to betray that casual notion. Even proposals with hours of work 
put into them are not getting BIP numbers. It's not exactly as though there's a 
shortage of integers. Are numbers assigned only to proposals that are well 
liked? Isn't the point of assigning numbers so that we can have organized 
discussions about all proposals, even ones we don't like?
