I thought this too. But, I think that haskell-cafe is high traffic,
whereas people subscribe just to haskell at haskell.org when they just want
announcements and HWN (which has been awesome lately, by the way).
But I think a discussion e.g. about providing medical treatment to
prisoners of war might benefit both haskell-cafe and the discussion itself
to be on another list.
Especially as the community is growing rapidly, it might benefit from
having an outlet for all of this energy.
I think just putting a little note beside the mailing list "high traffic"
as opposed to "off topic" before you get to the subscribe step would
suffice, without needing to change names.
