I meant an inter-project list, not an intra-project list.

If it is not private, then how about here on ooo-dev?

Although one could imagine a set of additional list for every dev
specialization in the project, I'm not sure we really need a separate
public list for security.   But once you get started, it is hard to
stop: security, then qa, localization, performance, accessibility, UI,
doc, help, install, etc..  Creating lists and putting boxes around
things is very clean and logical.  I assume that is how OOo ended up
with 300+ of them.
