Well, the biggest problem with -maintainers was that it was only postable 
through on subscription (which also kept people from using tools like the GMane 
NNTP and web interfaces) and that subscription was essentially limited to 
existing maintainers (which kept not only the random users out, but even people 
with legitimate content to post).
