Selective forwarding to -devel, perhaps?

Example. I am not normally interested in ITPs. I just happened to
spot one which caught my eye. I would guess that a lot of ITPs are
like that. The idea of them going to -devel is, I think, a good one
in principle. I'd prefer not to have to subscribe to Yet Another List
for something of only marginal interest.
But I'm sure others may disagree....
