Apple doesn't care one bit if people post concepts. There are entire websites dedicated to such things, and Apple hasn't blinked. People have even sent such mockups to Apple as suggestions.
If you want to get Apple Legal's attention, you post leaked information about what they actually are

Our forum creation policy is driven by need: If a particular subtopic becomes a significant part of the total traffic in a forum, to the extent that it's pushing other topics off the first page, then it will get its own forum. This doesn't happen often. As I mentioned above, sometimes the reverse happens, too.

As long as we're on UBB, our hands are basically tied. We've had a lot of problems, and we've basically just been trying to keep UBB from breaking any more than it already has until we're able to move to vBulletin.
But we'll definitely keep that in mind, when it becomes possible.
