Sorry, but I find this argument less than compelling. emacs-devel has less than 40 msg/day, which is low. Anyone who dislikes wandering threads can silence them. And wandering threads often come back to Emacs issues. Anyone who's "leaving this list due to its penchant for straying off-topic for so long" will likely leave anyway due to its penchant for long threads, even on-topic. No one is interested in all issues.
