There is no reason.  Howerver, much of the discussion spins off of the
proposals and results and such so the discussion tends to remain on -vote.
The only argument I can see for -vote being a discussion list is volume.
There *could* be people who want to participate in the dicussions who can't
handle the volume of -devel (for a variety of reasons, one that I consider
valid is the cost of d/l the mail for people how pay either by the byte or
by the minute).

I would object to any rule that discussion *must* be on -vote, but I would
also object to any rule that dicussion *must not* be on -vote.

Please cc all mailing list replies to me, also.
