Anyone can write an individual draft at any[1] time.  Having thoughts
specified in a concrete proposed specification can help people to
understand the proposal, help people provide suggested changes, and
prevent duplication of effort attempting to describe the same idea
in multiple email messages.

A side effect of a better understanding of a given proposal may (or may
not) be a decision to not adopt it as a WG item, but that risk does
not seem like a reason to not write an individual draft.


[1] submission is blacked out for a couple weeks prior to in-person IETF
meetings, but that doesn't keep you from writing.
