I've seen one proposal that we split the lists and a couple of replies that 
the "off-topic" material is interesting and valuable.  I don't see enough 
demand for a change.

You're free to create any list you like, of course.  But this is the list the
OSI will be monitoring for input.  We don't have the time or energy to handle
multiple discussions on multiple, needlessly-separated lists.

Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of
authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was
made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There
are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to
govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.
