My advice would be: get started now; worry about others deprecating at the 
Vancouver summit. ;]

My experience has been that people who care look for people they know involved, 
popularity, and currency/signs-of-life. I'd bet that if you:

* Provide the plugin under a clearly related, "official" github account which 
has good reputation (either hashicorp or mitchellh work for this)
* Actively maintain it so the commit history shows signs of life
* Publicize it widely, from their blog as well as others

... you'll gain the momentum you want within 3-6 months.
