[Framework-Team] Let sleeping PLIPs lie...

Sorry for the silly subject line, it's getting late :]

I have gone through all the PLIPs that are targeting 3.0, marked them as  
"in progress" if they have work that I know about, and pinged most of the  
maintainers about the review bundle deadline this weekend.

In addition, I have identified the following PLIPs that are  
delayed/postponed, but that I think should still be in the running for 3.0  
because of decisions that need to be resolved by the FWT (like a decision  
on which AJAX framework to use), because of their relative low effort vs.  
high value, because of unforeseen circumstances (new look for Plone is  
delayed because Alma had to do Plone Conference work), or because a bundle  
doesn't make that much sense for that particular PLIP.

In addition, I denote the ones that "would be nice but are not crucial"  
the "sleeper PLIPs". These fit just as well in 3.5 if they are not  
completed before the betas, but carry very little risk if implemented in  

All PLIPs have comments on them about bundle status/suitability and/or  
delay causes.

Here's the list of things that probably won't have bundles for the

http://plone.org/products/plone/roadmap/116 (AJAX dep)
http://plone.org/products/plone/roadmap/163 (AJAX dep)
http://plone.org/products/plone/roadmap/124 (AJAX dep)

http://plone.org/products/plone/roadmap/175 (sleeper PLIP)
http://plone.org/products/plone/roadmap/126 (sleeper PLIP)

http://plone.org/products/plone/roadmap/132 (limi was wrong)
http://plone.org/products/plone/roadmap/176 (visual redesign pending)

A special one is:
http://plone.org/products/plone/roadmap/134 (too important to be dropped,  
needs champion - also relatively easy to do)

If you disagree with any of these assessments, or can help with getting  
things in shape where needed (Reader/Editor role PLIP, for instance), I'd  
appreciate the feedback so I can pull some strings before the end of the  
week deadline. :)
