As an alternative, you could also send the suggestions in via the ACSP process
so that they are visibly documented for the community.

This is not criticism of the idea of sending them to John directly. I am sure he
will take them under advisement and pass them to the board in good faith, but,
if you submit via ACSP, then other members of the community can also express
support or opposition.
