What you suggest (a built-in list of proposed changes to choose from) seems
very interesting to me.
Personally, as a user, I would have liked it a lot.
Still, one thing that bugs me is the possibility of sampling bias.
Assuming that there are several groups of LO users that have different
design requirements, the worry is that some groups will contribute to the
survey more then their relative share in the general users population.
A possible way to control for this might be to have users who wish to
contribute register to an account in which they have to provide some
demographic data. In order to influence, one will have to register and tell
a bit about him/her-self.
This will enable, first, to look for different user-groups (in terms of
usage preferences) and then adjust the poles by demographic statistics
(for example, if the users population has about the same amount of
small-business users and students, but it turns out that students are much
more active in sending their preferences, the survey analyst can weigh each
contribution by group-membership weight in the general users population).
Such a registration-based system can also control for multi-votes.
