Some of the changes proposed seem reasonable, but they aren't in the right form 
for review; they need to be pull requests against the appropriate repository.

I don't think we're using the older design review committee process any longer, 
and it should not be revived.  The pull request review process is sufficient.  
In the case of Sugarizer, that's the process that Lionel has preferred.

However, as someone who works in science research, the proposal does not seem 
to have been researched, but is rather a collection of ideas that would be 
suitable for changing Sugarizer using A/B testing for the goal of increasing 
engagement and selling advertising.  Neither of these are intended, it's an 
educational project.  Sugar and Sugarizer don't have to look like everything 
else on the internet, and starting with that premise is an error.
