OK, and this is what we did.

I thought a bit about this, but I don't think it will work. N-L 
communities are interested in end-users discussions, generic support, 
and a series of activities, like localization, QA, marketing, education.

I see more reasonable and more focused that we group those "activities" 
by language (or by geography when it makes sense) and that we rely on 
"liaison persons" that will be the contacts between localized lists and 
this list. This way, for example, a translation deadline could be 
communicated here and forwarded to a hypothetical Italian "activities" 
list, and conversely a suggestion discussed on that list could be 
reported here.

It is much more likely than, say, an Italian volunteer helps with both 
localization and QA of the Italian version rather than an Italian 
localization volunteer helps with the French localization; this is why I 
would separate by language rather than by type of activity.
