Well, IMHO you have to wear two hats at the same time.

For new stuff that should get into a release eventually, wear your core-developer hat. Discuss on squeak-dev, get it into trunk.

For actually making the release, wear your release-manager hat. Package what's in trunk. No more.

And btw, nobody is saying the trunk process is perfect. We need to refine it, and possibly switch to another model some day if we figure out an even better way to gather contributions. But for now it's what we have, and to get wide support for your ideas IMHO it would be best for you to stick to it.
