a), but instead of doing the full discussion on release-team, I think it makes 
sense to first find out what the team doing the software itself wants, and in 
that phase, the discussion is best held on, e.g. plasma-devel, and when 
there's a consensus is reached, taken to release-team for further discussion.

That is in fact how I see the past discussions. If it felt like a finished plan 
is presented to the release-team, that was not, at least my, intention, and we 
can make sure in the future it's clearer.
