A note from a chair of a list I participate on.
One side effect is to limit the participation of
non-OASIS members regardless of their depth of
participation or contribution. That can be a
serious handicap to the niche efforts. It
would be sad to see the innovations that are
born of research and experimentation have to
move to Yahoo.
I understand the difficulties of constraining
open lists. I also understand the advantages.
Far too often what has initially looked like
yet another lunatic-fringe element has proven
to be a seminal and important source of ideas
even where they are in conflict with the immediate
goals of the corporate membership.

It seems there is
some push to restrict discussion on the comments
lists and to move serious discussion to the
restricted discussion lists.
Can you please elaborate more as to why you feel this way?
