Agreed, I think multiple lists would be great for everyone else who is
not on the Commons PMC; in fact that was a major reason why Commons
RDF went to the Incubator first, to have its own mailing lists in the
constructive phase.

However it could be very fragmenting for the PMC as there's the danger
of developing the "Crypto PMC", "Math PMC" etc - effectively making an
Apache within Apache. We should not forget the Jakarta learning
either. Perhaps if all PMC members agree to stay on all of the
sub-lists, and all release votes are done on dev@commons, then it
could work well.
