Sorry for my slow response - although I see that you've solved most of 
these already, answering in case others have the same questions.

This was one of the things that was addressed (but not yet updated in 
the doc!) in the recent SIG feedback discussion. The Board has discussed 
this requirement, and there's still some clarity lacking ... but, yes, 
the sponsor can fill that spot.

I see that you've already requested that edit access. It's fine for the 
proposing individual to create and own the wiki page.

The Board will discuss the proposal at the upcoming meeting on the 9th. 
Hopefully they'll also speak up here if they feel that there is anything 
missing from the proposal that might cause it not to be accepted.
