I think you are asking about whether you can start discussing smaller
changes for unifying the call signatures of different functions like
what we did with median.  If so, the answer is yes.  You can just
create a new page and start listing the instances where you find this
kind of situation.  I personally would like to see all those kinds of
things cleaned up at some point, although some things may have to wait
until a distant, major release like 2.0 or greater.

Regardless it would be useful if you could gather examples of these
kinds of things.
