There may be exceptional situations that require this. *May* be. 

e.g. - major security issue, perhaps - but we have an announce list for
that. Notice that a piece of critical infrastructure (website, wiki,
mailing lists) will be down, sure. 

Things that don't rise to that level: Requests to look at a patch;
support requests; etc.

I do. There was no specific "hey, this needs attention from a marketing
perspective" message there. And if there *is* a need to get *specific
marketing feedback* then send a *separate* message with actual requests
curtailed for that list.

I don't find the "no time to send three seperate mail" excuse
compelling, either. You're essentially telling every subscribe to these
lists that your time is more valuable than theirs by cross-posting.
