Should we have a relay-queue?

Notice that the to-field goes to two different places and remove one of
them on reply please.

I've just finished a text that would do well for starting a relay and it
got me to thinking: should we have a queue of unused relay-starters?
That way, if anyone felt like running a relay he, she or it could pick
the topmost text and make a relay out of it, leaving the original author
out of the loop if need be. The entries in the queue would be like a
finished link in the chain: original, mini-dictionary, grammar notes,
smooth translation and an interlinear (that if necessary could be
snipped away before publishing).

This might however mean that the chain might not be closed, if the
starter-author doesn't translate the last link in the chain back to the
starter language.
