I think a refereed forum -- more likely a conference with proceedings, 
at least at first, than a journal -- is an excellent idea.  But 
don't underestimate the amount of work it would take, on an ongoing 
basis.  It also takes a long time to establish enough credibility that 
academics would publish in it.  A better path might be to carve out a 
niche in an existing conference or journal.
