For what it's worth, I do support topic specific lists and this is why. If
you are one of the few who actually do more than talk on these lists,
meaning, you draft proposals, reports and so on, it becomes a nightmare to
trawl through the ga archives for relevant posts to summarize. Topic
specific lists greatly assist that process.
At the same time, I agree with you that you should not be restricted on the
GA main list, which is where the seeds of ideas may be planted and
incubated. If your ideas receive support, then they may be transplanted to a
more nurturing environment amongst members with a particular interest in
bringing such ideas forward to fruition.
Whether you give these topic-specific lists the label of working group or
not, is irrelevant. The task is likely to be similar.
Really, it's common sense to make a comment to a group which is directed to
deal with it, but if you prefer not to do so, I, for, one have no
objections. Just don't expect any sympathy if a written report does not take
your comments into consideration.
