You're certainly welcome to submit this proposal, but you should be
aware that the bar for "new" applications like this is much higher,
since you have to argue that the app is viable and needed as well as
demonstrating your ability to implement it.

Note also that you can submit multiple proposals, if there are other
projects that interest you.
