Is there a common tendency among people involved with the W3C to feel that 
all activity should if possible take place on W3C mailing lists?

I received several similar messages when I set up XHTML-L when www-html 
already existed.  Several of them were downright hostile.

I don't know whether XSDSchema will make it, but I tend to find the 
conversation on non-W3C mailing lists to have a really different tone than 
that on W3C mailing lists.  It's a kind of diversity I'd rather see 
supported than scorned.
