Go ahead and create a wiki page for the idea, and link to
it from the wine SoC wiki page.
I'm going to do that for one or two prefab projects myself.

But last year we had lots of applicants who simply copied and
pasted the wiki page for their proposal, with minimal rewording.
We would like to make it easy to tell those people apart from
people who actually understand the project and can bring their
own ideas to bear.  So  while you're writing your page, try
to think of ways to encourage students to fill in the dots themselves.
