I would agree with this. You ain't seen high-traffic yet! ...

I would also agree with:

It would be useful for some purposes to have a WAI-IG-Unofficial-Chat list. 
For example, the perennial problem of discussing other people's 
poorly-coded Web sites could be handled in this way. It could also be used 
to discuss political and social issues that may be relevant background to 
WAI but are not part of its specific tasks. Of course summaries or 
conclusions from interesting & on-topic discussions could always be posted 
back to the main list. So you could sub to the Unofficial Chat list, which 
would be like the DVD with all the outtakes & alternate cuts, or you could 
sub to the main list, which would be like going to the theater & just 
getting the final edited product (but without paying 9 bucks).
