No, it is the wrong place. This list would be suitable, if you are going 
to implement the feature yourself and need some code pointers.

For discussion whether the feature is useful and to learn about 
alternative and perhaps better ways in LibreOffice, use the mailinglist 
users at or discuss at or a forum.

After the request has matured in the discussions, submit an enhancement 
request in our Issuetracker.

Kind regards
