Hmm, your argument sounds like something from talk :)
ie it's not technical, not related to the objective and just invites a
massive off-topic debate; all fine in a casual conversation but not in a
focussed discussion.

I'd suggest that the barrier to entry for a mailing list cf talk is
substantially less than the barrier to entry of a private school.

Anyone from talk is welcome to join the list provided they plan on
engaging in development oriented discussions (and yes, they do meander -
no-one cares *that* much).
