Topic: policy for adding new dependencies

So @davidtwco this PR for the rustc-guide raised an interesting question -- should we have some policy for when it's ok to add an external dep? (As opposed to creating a rust-lang crate).

Do we have a place we are tracking 'pending policy questions'? If so, we should add it. If not, we should make one.

There was some mention of that at the bottom of the now-merged crate policy

Only the big list of #t-compiler/wg-meta todo items.
