I think this is a fantastic idea as well - would you like to Guinea Pig
your project on the new OWASP Projects Portal? :)
Here is what I have thus far for information:
1) Project Name: OWASP Top 10 Proactive Controls
2) Project Purpose/Overview: Concentrate on the Top 10 things to get
right for the next five years.
3) Project Roadmap:
4) Project License: CC-SA
5) Project Leader: Andrew van der Stock (vanderaj at owasp.org)
6) Project Leader Sourceforge Account:
7) Project Contributers/Sourceforge Accounts:
Please complete the above and send it to projects at owasp.org and we will
get it setup for you stat!

OWASP Top 10 control changed between 2010 and 2012 editions. So probably
best to make a new project that doesn't distort the existing 2012
process or resulting document. Hopefully, the new proactive project can
get some serious marketing oomph / promotion so as to get some traction
outside of traditional OWASP Top 10 consumers.

for me to get to now that I don't work from home. This project sounds
like a potentially very valuable project in its own right, particularly
if we can coordinate with / revitalise the ASVS project.

focusing on the things that went wrong in the previous 12 months, and
start to concentrate on the Top 10 things to get right for the next five
years. The existing Top 10 regularly gets incorporated without
permission into various other standards, and it's 100% the wrong way
around for that purpose. The Top 10 was never designed to be a standard.
