Since our design topics are www-related, it makes hard to decide where
to start topic about some, let's say, Fauxton feature. On one hand,
it's www-related, however, without design bits users cannot use it.
Split discussion over two ML's sounds as overkill.

While idea is good and clear, I don't believe that we can attract
enough people to have this ML alive. Suddenly, our active part of
community is quite small and here question lays in dimension to make
their life easy and to not loose even them.

There is a reason to create a new ML to isolate some specific
discussions from the others (like erlang talks from frontend). But you
want to fragmentate fronend topics while existed ML is not much
active. I'm fine with new ML, but I don't think it's reasonable to
have it now.
