It depends on the "shape" of your community.

The rationale for recommending that (most) Apache podlings initially
get a dev list only is that their users list might be too small to be
viable, resulting in a slightly fragmented community.

Some projects stay like that happily forever, maybe because they don't
really have users who are not also developers, or because they are
small communities.
