Have you considered the name:

Some other Apache lists have a "general" list as well.  I think the
idea is to use that for lists that cover more than just dev
discussions.  Since you want the jp list to cover users, doc,
marketing, translate, etc., as well as dev, then "general" might be a
good pattern to adopt.

What do you think?

In any case, +1 for Japanese list, with a slight preference for the
name "ooo-general-jp".
