Gee, that sounds like a good idea. In fact, SUCH a good idea that
it's been implemented for years.
Seriously though, if there is anybody else on debian-security who
is NOT also subscribed to debian-security-announce, you should
probably do so. There have been a few debian-security posts
recently asking about the status of something for which a fix was
announced on debian-security-announce a couple of days
My understanding is that debian-security IS more or less a debian-
user for security issues. :)
