I imagine the problem with this idea is that usually interfaces are trickier than implementations, and it's very hard to know if an interface is "right" without also having a decent implementation. e.g. presumably the problem with pm_qos that made it inadequate for android's needs probably wasn't obvious when that code was reviewed (and is still not clear to me).

They could still explain though, why the existing interfaces did not suit them and what they proposed to/were in the process of creating instead. That would at least give some valuable feedback as to how likely the changes are to get in. The embedded people do create implementations. Even that limited feedback as they went along might make everyone's life easier.
