Sure, you are welcome to pick that idea for a proposal.

Therefore I would recommend you to play a bit with QGIS new symbology
from user's point of view - with renderers, symbols, symbol layers,
styles. That should give you an idea of the current state of vector
symbology - from there you could proceed with writing a proposal,
stating more precisely what things would you like to improve.

And remember that what is in the wiki page is just a bunch of ideas -
you are free to use those or come up with different ones! As you
already mentioned, the bug tracking system is also a valuable source
of ideas. Good luck with your proposal and if you have any
questions/ideas do not hesitate to write to qgis-dev list.
