I can only guess, buy I suspect that DSA is rather hesitating about
boring all developers, which are required to read d-d-a. The new list
would not be required to be read by DDs.

I wouldn't mind having more traffic on d-d-a personally, but I can
imagine that other disagree on this point. I can therefore only suspect
that Joey thinks that a dedicated list could encourage DSA to write more
emails about infrastructure topics.
