I think you should go for it.
I'm not following the conversation in detail, but perhaps this
should be considered in conjunction with LITW (just a 'wild'
idea :) ? If so, you could link of the LITW wiki page. If,
however, this cluster idea is associated with some other even
(or no event at all), then try to find a suitable place to list
it on the wiki, and it can always be 'refactored' if need be.
