I raised this on private@commons and reported back to dev@commons on
that discussion here:

In summary though, there was very little support to go that route and
some objections.

All commons components share the same set of mailing lists which makes
it easier for PMC members to provide oversight for the 30+ components
that live there. As part of this proposal we want to use the commons
mailing lists for commits and discussion so that by the time this
podling is ready to graduate the new committers and Commons PMC will
have a better knowledge of each other and there will be no issue with
voting in the new committers.

The use of the commons mailing lists is in the proposal and was part
of the vote held on dev@commons to sponsor this incubation effort:
