so that would certainly be something that could be done under the IRTF umbrella. We have wikis and can get other tooling set up as needed.

But: As with anything, it requires someone to feel strongly enough about it to spend their own time on it and make it happen. Unless you mean "I want do to X in the IRTF" when you write "the IRTF should", it's unlikely that anyone else will do it.

(as IRTF chair)

PS: irtf-discuss at irtf.org might be a better list for discussing this, however.
