Yes, but what matters is that bad-willing people have access to names that
they in theory only few should have access to.

These days the rules may not be necessary, but believe me, when this list
one day will have over a hundred participants, this may become different.

No, don't think so, some of the people will be in both lists, and mail the
important things to the once-a-week group.

Of course people could also chit-chat besides the group when some
uncertainties are present, I guess that even now that happens.
