Yes, definitely.

I disagree, actually. The Team already announces such documents on the
W3C news. Such announcements are very generic and don't provide the
necessary context for understanding how to address the review request.
This is the reason the editors, not the staff contact, in the CSSWG
are responsible for the announcements to www-style and the blog.

If there's no reason the announcement to www-style and public-review-announce
should not be exactly the same, then they should just be copies of the
same message, sent by the same person. Why not?

If these announcements should be different somehow, I'd like to know how.
