Please remember Roy that your mails do not make policy either.

"Policies" (for whatever level they exist here) have been set up
established practice- and as you know the mode of operation here so far
has been "add yourself to the wiki". So for all practical purposes, it
*was* the policy here until your email.

I have no problem with changing it but don't try to make it look like
there's "piling on" when established practice has is followed. I'm
absolutely +1 for changing the process and having the proposer control
who joins the project as you recommend.
