If acquiring DEP numbers is to be done by posting to a mailing list, then
they all need to go to the same mailing list.

I agree that a VCS would be nicer for atomicity, or a system that allows you
to submit a DEP and get back an assigned number; but as long as the "atomic
increment" is via a mailing list, it's fairly important that they all be on
the same mailing list, and best that it be a mailing list that people
actually use. :)
