Please don't categorize people in such way. This doesn't contribute to
any argument at all  since there are people on the list who is neither
spec editors and implementers but prefer mailing list. I for one is such
a person and I don't believe that I am the only one (OK, just noticed
that Julian Reschke got annoyed too).

Consider, for example, people who you call Web developers:

* Django[2] uses Google Groups (but calls them mailing lists). If you
think Google Groups is satisfactory already then I think you might want
to ask W3C staff here to see if this is doable.
* jQuery[3] uses custom forums (but calls them mailing lists from the
main page). If this indeed what you are imaging, please ask W3C staff
here to see if they are willing to commit effort to port that software
to W3C. I haven't used them so actually I don't it it's satisfactory to me.

Note that www-style is closer in complexity of the technology to Django
than jQuery and I haven't mentioned Linux, LLVM, PHP and all those you
are not going to call Web developers-related, and browsers projects are
bigger than those in terms of lines of codes.

If you are willing to make the effort, please talk to the W3C staff
here. Please consider the path suggested in [4] too.
