If the intent is to makes sure that people are aware of relevant discussions, even if they're not on one of the attendee lists (and I usually decline that), it might be better to use ietf-announce@ -- e.g., in a "rollup" e-mail before the meeting, where submissions are solicited ahead of time. Or with an open calendar / wiki space (we rely on e-mail to much for stateful things anyway).

Again, ietf@ should _not_ be the default place for announcing things. It is a subset of the community.
