This statement makes no sense.  The core team wouldn't have much to
do with this other than possibly being involved in making any service
official.  Also, approval is never given to include a non-existent
feature.  Easy, binary updates sound like a great idea, but without
seeing actual code thats all anyone can say other than offering advice.
If volunteering is conditional on acceptance of the work, that's a
chicken-egg problem and is not resolvable.  We simply can't maintain
quality if we accept non-existent code just because the idea sounds
