You can always write a global proposal to try and move such an idea
forward. If you would like some advice or assistance in conducting
such an activity, please let myself or one of the others members of
the ASO AC (Louis Lee and Jason Schiller) we can point you in the
right direction.

That goes for anyone else as well. Anyone can submit a global policy
much like anyone can submit a local policy.
