As with any contribution to any Apache project, "discuss design and
intended changes on the dev@ list" is a pretty basic requirement. I'd
suggest you start with that before issuing any work orders. Filing an
issue in Jira isn't the same as discussing the proposed change. There
has been very little discussion of your proposal on this list, and we're
nowhere near a consensus.

Ah ... I don't think so? Contributors to Apache projects are
individuals, not companies (IMO, for the purpose of this discussion,
you'd count as "company" if you hired someone else do do the actual
work). If the scope of the work is large enough, the author must file an
ICLA. You don't get to stand in as a proxy.
