Oops, I didn't really address your confusion.  The point of this list
is to give us a place to talk about rules and stuff.  :-)
"www-rdf-rules" may not work for some topics because of the RDF angle.
And we didn't want to make a general rules-talk list until it's more
clear what future rules work has at W3C.  So this list gives us a
place to talk with a post-workshop scope, probably as an interim
measure.
