Hi, thank you for your explanation and the link.

I have read the It describes the mechanics of a protocol change,
which is very useful in itself.

However, my questions were mostly around the circumstances in which an idea
about a new protocol, or a protocol change may arise, and what decides how
that change then propagates to implementations.

Which you inferred, and explained in the rest of your message. So I think I
got the answer that I was after.
