debian-announce has seen very little posts in the last two years, mostly only 
about point releases. So no wonder journalists are subscribed to 
debian-devel-announce also.

I think that would be good. There have been quite many posts which "only" 
ended up on d-d-a, but are of interested for "power users" (and journalists) 
as well. Some posts to d-d-a are certainly not suited for debian-announce, 
but in my opinion many are. 

I even sort d-d-a and d-a into the same mailbox :) And debian-news ends up in 
a mailbox which is labeled "Debian Weekly News" here :)
