[wp-docs] new codex page for developers/dev discussion?

I just finished reading through the archives on the New Pages 
discussion; sorry I didn't get to it sooner, didn't realize how deep and 
sensitive the issue could be.

I wish to have a page on the codex talking about the current state of 
WordPress database support, particularly the interest of including 
Postgres and other databases in future releases.  This is following the 
suggestion of developer Matt way back in 2004 on a WordPress support 
thread about the topic.[1]

In the interests of keeping my newly created page, "Database 
Support"[2], from remaining bastardly, where might be a good place to 
provide the link-to?  All the sections of the codex seem centered on 
end-user support, and not on developer discussion.  Should there be a 
"Developer" section on the Main Page?  Might be a good place to include 
the wildly popular topics of feature requests &c.

Does anyone object to the page name "Database Support" for this topic? 
I can see the verb "support" being ambiguous in this case; someone might 
go to the page looking for help on getting their database set up, when I 
mean that which WordPress supports.  Any better suggestions?
