In part , yes, BEPs are mainly aimed at helping in fleshing out ideas
by consolidating a big and complicated proposal that is hard to
understand by following ML discussion threads . There's even no need
to create one such document to get features in .

Because :

  1. the wiki page is a very bad resource to track feature comments ,
      changesets traceability , regressions , test failures ...
  2. not everything that's been done is documented in detail in BEPs
      just the surface , the overall picture (e.g. for BEP 3
      consider multiproduct UI tickets, permission policy , ...)
  3. there should be a list of tickets implementing BEP in
      implementation notes section

in order to not to make this happen without major efforts involved a
wiki to ticket solution may be installed in place . just one click
required .

PS: all that is IMO
