If other people find it valuable, that's all the authority you need.

The last time someone tried to set forth a complete specification in a 
particular order was the Perl 6 documentation project.  That didn't work 
then.  I have doubts that specifying a complete compiler and toolchain 
without at least some trial and error will work, but I could be wrong.

Maybe the right place to start is to gather a list of all of the questions you 
need to have answered and all of the features people want, and then try to 
unify them into a Perl 6-ish whole.
