1) Since the special feature about /resources is that it's not permission-checked, could the name reflect that? What about /public-resources or /public?
2) Can we make this the first TIP? (Or OIP?) One quick-and-dirty way to support the OIP process technologically might be a new forum. Anybody can post, first post in a thread must be a full, formal OIP proposal; then the thread has a week or two (or whatever is in the OIP plan - we should link that in the forum title) to accumulate yes and no votes from the Core Team. I'm sure this process has many drawbacks compared to a new custom package or a special version of Bugs, but are any of those drawbacks fatal? If not, I hope we do this or something similar to get momentum in a formal OIP process.
