I think the basic problem is that some threads live longer than their
original subject and tend to degrade in chatter about random other
topics. New mailinglists wouldn't solve that problem as the threshold
for randomness is different for everyone, but some debian-offtopic
list could make make sense. (I wouldn't join it.)

Too few MUAs have a button for "don't bother me about new mail
in this (sub-)thread".
