Sounds good to me.

'talk-moderation' is short, and makes it clear that it covers all  
aspects of both the technology and the associated social side of  
managing contributions. Some people may think it is the place to  
complain about every bad edit, but we can deflect those requests with  
a good wiki.

The other question though:-

1) Would you support the existence of such a list?
2) Would you join it?

If no one supports it or would join it from talk-gb then I won't  
progress the idea any more!
