dev is for the implementation, I personally think user and dev should be 
used. Depending on if I want a wider audience right away or not I 
usually go with either first

reading it again your proposal was very specific without actually saying 
much ;) I think you need to chop them up one DSL at a time, maybe the 
suggestions for the extension methods in one mail on their own and then 
we can start discussing about if we want that like that or at all or 

You will also have to explain why you want what you want specifically... 
for example those bw prefixed methods... I am not sure what they are 
actually for.
