Ah, I see. IIUC, this is then about more specific topics than I was 
assuming previously, and reminds me a bit of the "Tenders for budget" 
collection [1].

Not having been in the call, my previous assumption was more something 
like a mixture of the two levels you mention above, like:
"RTL needs work. If somebody starts working on it, looking at the 
corresponding meta bug might be a good starting point when trying to get 
an overview, besides potential input from people that have experience in 
the area. But while working on bugs from the meta bug, the developer 
will presumably identify other things that need work, and come up with 
their own agenda/suggestion on how to continue to drive the (rather 
high-level) area forward."
