Create an Architecture Council? Council would gather input from implementers, developers, and users and to provide guidance to Platform Expert Groups on platform evolution in the interests of maintaining competitiveness, compatibility and relevance.
The membership of this group should be primarily technical, and it must operate by consensus and through negotiation with the Platform Spec Leads.

[This is a suggestion made several years ago, by Sun.]
For the record, both Bill Shannon (Java EE Spec Lead) and Mark Reinhold (Java SE Spec Lead) oppose this idea. They believe that the platform Expert Groups are the appropriate forum for these kinds of activities.

I think the main issue here is working with the community and getting their feedback. This was done fairly well with Java 7, at least much better than before. Whether there's an architecture council or not, communication and transparency are key here.
