It seems counterproductive to tell people to produce results without
doing the brainstorming that such results require.

If such discussion is not welcome here, then the FreeBSD project has a
similar kernel design. Perhaps it would be more productive for those
interested in this to brainstorm on their mailing list. If anything
materializes, it could be for their kernel instead. Nothing is forcing
anyone to do things with Linux.
