Those who have been on Area 51 know reputation is really quite hard to come by unless you can think of a great proposal. Reputation cannot be earned by posting good questions or answers in the discussion zone.

1000 rep is required to edit questions and proposals, would it not also be fair to implement edit suggestions for users with 200 rep?

I support this; allowing 200-rep editing suggestions would encourage positive behavior, increase the usability of the website, and make it more consistent with some other SE sites such as Stack Overflow. Having historically made great proposals is essentially unrelated to making competent editing suggestions.

Moreover, it decreases the incentive to post proposals for the sake of raising rep to fully use the site.
