My point is that this situation tends to ignore the effected maintainer
who has too much to do to get involved in "all" policy decissions. 

It has come clear to me that I _must_ subscribe to debian-policy if I can
ever hope to keep up with the flow of things. This completely defeats the
primary reason for splitting the lists. I'm not so sure that I "need" to
be involved in crafting policy. I am pretty sure that I need a better way
to keep track of the ebb and flow of said policy.
