Things are not that bad. (See Shadow DOM for instance where people begged
for it to become a standard)

You should definitely write something up and have a working prototype that
demonstrates how your solution improves performance, cleaner
implementations, etc. You will also have to prove that this won't introduce
security issues.
Any new feature will face a lot of scrutiny since it impacts everything
that runs a web browser so be prepared for negative feedback. You will
spend much more time replying on mailing list than actually implementing
it. :-)

Even if your proposal fails, it will still be used as a reference for a
future solution.
