The conclusion you derive from the fact is only an opinion though.
Maybe it does make sense for others to hear what's going on in Math?
...and be it just for the board reports?

That comparison is pretty flawed as those projects are not tiny components.

I've never a great fan of umbrellas but the components are so small -
I don't see another option. The thought of components to go TLP feels
just plain silly to me. Hence it would be great to work together as a
community that takes care of those components.

While from a practical standpoint (if everyone filters anyway) you
might be right, my guess is that a community with many list will not
have the same feeling of affiliation.
