I have created #683628 for that (any improvements in wordings is welcomed).

Yes, I agree. As I got no response from the pkg-horde mailing-list, I
suspected that nobody was really interrested.

Do you still think that I should send something to d-d-a?

Yes, but before any of this, we first should push enough packages to
unstable. The main question is: Anyone interrested to finish my work?
