If the rationale for this is that -devel is a strategic list for Debian
contributors, I'd like to point out that for a non uploading DD, 
-devel is mostly useless. Or at least for the kind of non-uploading
work *I* do.
In addition, obviously, to be high volume and quite full of noise: that's
why I'm happily not subscribed ;). 
Anyone who freely decide to subject themselves to that kind of noise has my
complete admiration (YKINMKBYKIO), but please let's not make this mandatory.

My two cents,
