A couple thoughts:

1) having a proposal or design document makes it easier for us to
understand what you are doing as opposed to trying to reverse engineer
your patch and makes it easier for you to get feedback.

2) sending html mail to a mailing list is considered bad manners.
Plus it makes for ugly msgs in the web archives.
