I agree that LGM should communicate more. And getting a sense of how many 
proposals have been submitted might be something worth considering.

However, I don't agree that putting the actual proposals into the public is a 
good idea. Doing so has always the implicit side effect of stating "and these 
that were proposed and not approved in the end were not good enough for us" 
which easily falls back on the person doing the proposal. Even if it was just 
rejected because the timetable was already full or there were several 
proposals about more or less the same topic.
