Mentors need to evaluate individual efforts. Collaboration can be tricky
to evaluate. It would be better if your proposal covers a specific part
of the interface, including the AJAX additions.

Be careful, your proposal must make sense for a 12-week individual
effort, so "Cleaning up the Database Operations page" is too small,
while "Cleaning up the whole interface" is too large in scope. Anyway,
"cleaning up" would need more details in the proposal.

We are going in the jQuery direction so AJAX should be done using jQuery.

Yes, but notice that there can be thousands of tables in a db.
