I see where you're going... My main gripe with it is that I don't see
how the duplicate-thread-to-EE and reply-to-both-lists rules can be
enforced in the ML setup, so it will rely on people applying it.

If we can't get developers to use subject prefixes, I somehow doubt we
can get directors to follow thread replication rules between two
mailing-lists. And the discussion can quickly get messy if a subset of
people don't follow the rules.

The alternative setup doesn't depend so much on people following a copy
rule, so my impression is that it would be more successful in the end ?
