I would like to propose that unlike what existed under Sun and
Oracle, the linguistic communities _including_ the English
speaking community, are all identified by a specific language
marker and that all the lists that do not use that language
marker are explicitly multilingual.

I would not suggest doing so. This simply leads to chaos.

Certainly not. The reason why is that most people would still use
English as the communication language.

In any case, the current "global" lists are not global, they are
English lists and should be identified as such.

They are handling global items, as I see it.
I do not mind if some people post there in a language that I do not understand (and there are many) but then I cannot join nor help.
That is not what you intend I think?

There is no need for a "global" user list

Joining the global users lists, gives the largest public, so more knowledge / international exchange. I find that useful in some cases.

and the "global" discussion
list should not be a mere "discussion" list but a "policy" list where
only items of global interest regarding TDF or LO are discussed.

As you might have seen, we're currently setting up more local(ized)
mailing lists, which will also help in reducing the traffic on this
main discussion list.

Ok, then create a few lists too to ensure that
all the low interest English traffic is redirected there please.

If you mean that people interested in English localisation should have own lists, then I am not sure if that will work, since all the global work is is done in English already.

What indeed is needed, is a way to make it work that people doing activities as marketing in areas where English is the language, have their lists. As far as I have seen (many unread messages) that is discussed also in another thread.
