FWIW, your proposal is more in line with what I thought debian-science
was about when I joined.  I haven't, personally, minded seeing packaging
related discussions go by but I do think the two types of discussions
would benefit from having their own venues.
Benefit is we also get updates about packages and that is really  useful for us.
As Linux user cannot remain only user, need to do system admin level work also for scientific packages.
Second thing is,  after making 2 separate list will there be increase in the user level queries? At present there are hardly user related queries.
