Nothing there that says it won't/can't happen.  What it says to me is that at 
the moment no developer thinks it's a good use of his time.  I'd seriously 
recommend going the brainstorm route - since only the feature requests that 
get interest from a lot of users go forward to the developers, they know that 
work on that feature request is worth while.

Personally I think that Brainstorm is the best idea that I've seen for a long 
time.  I can understand developers getting worn down with trying to separate 
wishes from genuine bug reports, and if this helps funnel useful things 
further up the to-do list it's a Good Thing (TM)
