At MSFT we've got lots of experts across the company, however I cant really have them join the aliases as in many cases a vast majority of the discussions are not relevant to them and in many cases not even in their current commitments (for example let's say the original designers of IE's XHR who are currently working on a new project). Nonetheless, their expertise is really valuable occasionally. Also, if people who are involved are out sick and/or vacation, they need to plough trough lots of difficult to follow plain text emails or clips of comments (that don't have a thread compression or hierarchy) to get up to speed.

I've been trying to assimilate the info and conversations on relevant issues and distil them to the internal parties, however it doesn't scale well.

Personally, I would  prefer specific mailing lists or rss feeds for
each spec the WG is working on.
