Really? Supermarkets make polls for products they do not wish to sell? And
they do accept the shopper's decision?
I have never seen such a supermarket!

Anyway even if the developers aren't "elected" by the users (to have what
you call a democratic structure) it still is pretty close to a democracy and
much more community friendly than meritocracy ;)

I think that nobody in the community would prevent you to organize such a poll. If you manage to deal with it from the ux and developer point of view, we always valued the broader input we can get. If you look at what is happening currently for the conditional formating dialog,
http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/Libreoffice-ux-advise-conditional-format-dialog-td3724185.html
what you want is currently happening.
But (there is always a but ;) the size of our community makes it very difficult to manage the feedback from our users. More if you add the language communities feedback (for this specific case, I know the FR community has been asked for feedback) it's even more complicated to collect the thoughts and translate them. So if you feel that you can manage to organize a communication flow between the different actors of the project, I'm really sure that nobody will prevent you to do so, on the contrary I'm sure you'll find people to support you and help you. It's not democracy still, it's: you want it, you do it ;-)

Kind regards
Sophie
