Perhaps it would be useful to simply have all discussions on the 
wiki-page? It would have to be organized better (not quite sure how well 
that is possible?) I've had a lot of parallel discussions that jump from 
email to wiki and back to email.

Also, surely it is possible to have the RFC/tagging only list not allow 
reply to at least not have discussion fracture at that point?
