Yes, yes and yes.

Good points for sure.  I recalled earlier today that there used to be
several *-JIG mailing lists, and those died from disuse.  Therefore I
propose that we definitely not separate out topics into new mailing
lists, that didn't work the first time around.  However, there's no
reason a JIG can't have a section in the wiki.  The only real added
layer of bureaucracy (heh first time using gmail's spellcheck) that I
really think is important here is the Council sponsorship.  Then when
the council meetings come around, the guys check the status of their
domains and can take any necessary action.  Same actions they take now
(last call, etc.), but there will be static repository of data about
the process that now gets lost in the dynamic mailing list.  I don't
think this is a big burden to ask of the councillors.
