I didn't really want to just 'me too' this idea, but it is a good  
idea. I especially like the idea of keeping in moderated and low  
volume. One possibility to handling discussion could simply be to mail  
out a link to an issue when a change is proposed, so that discussion  
could happen, and in a more centralized place. IMHO that ought to put  
an end to the "but you never told me" syndrome with major enhancements.
