You're entitled to that view. Similarly, I think that discussions about 
licences are central enough to OSM that they should be given the maximum 
exposure. Someone else probably thinks the same about JOSM's UI. Or the 
default Mapnik rendering. Or whatever.

But others may not agree. Personally I'm glad that house numbers are 
being debated right now on tagging@ rather than talk@, not least because 
I've never tagged a house number in my life and don't intend to ever do 
so. Personally I'm glad that JOSM's UI is being debated on josm-dev@ 
because I don't use JOSM. And so on.

OSM is a thousand things to a thousand people. What's central to you 
might not be central to others. Different lists give that flexibility.
