The confusion is not going to go away by changing the proper mailing
list again, the case is a good example, since the commenter references
the right document and that document says to post to www-dom, but he
sent it elsewhere. Others will assume www-dom is the right list for
various reasons and so you will end up with discussions on both lists.

The main thing that "let's use some other list" does where participants
are not very well synchronized is annoying people with "You posted to
the wrong list!" mails. An option might be to merge them, but that may
be a first for the W3C, so it's unclear that the infrastructure would
support this.
