The risk of them turning into flame wars is too high.
When people want attention from the moderators, they always make topics; by making topics, they are then adding clutter and giving the potential to ignite flame wars. Their response? FLAG IT. Don't go out in the open and propose it, just do it. We can't afford this on the verge of getting "revamped", the system is bound to change eventually, so don't initiate something you can't be responsible for.
This is especially for all the new regs, Spoon, War, etc: Observe before you take action. That's lesson one.
