1) I'm still worried about having the "central list" turning into
   another p5p. The idea of working groups was in part to make the
   process more focused and goal oriented. It sucks for generalists
   who just wants to follow everything (like me), but I still
   believe it can make the environment better for those who wants to
   work on getting something done.

2) A (possibly very short) RFC will be a good place to start the
   discussion and will give an author right away who you can assume
   will keep track of what's going down and make sure it gets
   documented. Having an evolving RFC (and more focused lists) will
   also make it much much easier for new contributers to "jump on" I

but except for that then I agree with all your points and what you
wrote looks a lot like how I perceived the talk at the tuesday
