The process you suggest is what I would prefer.  (PTLs writing proposals
for TC to approve)

Using the governance repo makes sense as a means for the PTLs to post
their proposals for review and approval of the TC.

Who gets final say if there's strong disagreement between a PTL and the
TC?  Hopefully this won't matter, but it may be useful to go ahead and
clear this up front.
