Traffic on this list is close to zero.  It doesn't look like developers 
working on core want to use this list for actual communication, rather 
for occasional one-stop announcements only.

Personally, I wouldn't mind to see questions about how to use core APIs 
properly and related topics on this list...  didn't really understand 
the recent repurpose to "core development only" topics.

I think we're giving newcomers an extremely hard time to figure out 
where to post a development-related question.

For most other FOSS projects, the development mailing list /is/ for 
development related questions that may not fit well elsewhere, or which 
may pertain to more than one API or module (in which case you've no 
effin' idea where the question belongs).

A separate module development list feels over-engineering to me.  It's 
not like we have 500 messages per day on this list.  Karl is also right 
in that pointing people to the support list doesn't really make sense.

We can still point people asking here to appropriate project queues, 
forums, stackexchange, or whatnot if necessary.  E.g., in this case, the 
question should rather have been filed as a support request for Webform 
module.  We could clarify that in the description of the development 
mailing list.
