As a side comment on the C++ Proposals thing: there are people who have never attended a C++ Standards Meeting and have pushed over 14 papers into the Standard.
Some of us (particularly myself) attend because the committee has separate priorities and so we have to represent ourselves. Other people present such great and good ideas that they don't have to do this at all, or get other people so excited about it because there's a present and clear need. And some people are just such good writers that their wording is perfectly apt and it just slides right into the Working Draft.
(I'm also writing papers in territory considered a "Minefield", so if I don't go my paper will just get blown up in the fury of debate and never get anywhere. Controversial things take time and dedication... time and dedication I'm not even sure I have, but will try for anyhow!)
