I think this is the best idea. It is clear that the testing community is 
too fractured at the moment; even when decisions are made once they get 
explained multiple times; typically once on public-html-testsuite (or in 
#htmlt), once on public-webapps-testsuite (or in #webapps). If CSS wasn't 
even more of a ghetto we would probably have the same conversations on 
public-css-testsuite. I don't even know how people in other WGs like Web 
Performance and WebRTC WG are finding out things about testing. Possibly 
they aren't.

Specifically I suggest we drop everything apart from public-test-infra and 
#testing. Anything that is truly WG specific should go to the main WG 
mailing list.
