You should definitely submit this to the GSoC OBF site; the proposal can be revised there.

It's a very good start, though the timeline needs some more detail.  For instance, it includes the community bonding period (first two goals).  That should be separate.  Separating those leaves three milestones, including two spanning over a month and the last one (cleanup).  Personally I'm not too concerned about the down-time in June-July unless we're running tight on milestones.

Overall, I think this is a very good approach to the problem at hand; I like the idea of possibly including BW compression.  You may want to check already-implemented tools along those lines; this might be beyond the stated goals, but it would be nice if time permits.  The ideas in the project may require creating another AlignI-like interface, but I don't necessarily consider that a bad thing. ;>
