But here's the thing: That split should have not affected the volume
on ietf-announce *at all*.  It should have reduced volume on
<ietf@ietf.org>rg>, which is a very different thing.  This isn't the
message thread to discuss that further, but I mention it here to lead
into agreement with some other comments:

I believe that having a new "rfp-announce" list is a fine thing *if*
RFC announcements are posted to *both* ietf-announce and rfc-announce.
That should satisfy all the concerns here: those who subscribe to
ietf-announce need to change nothing and will still get RFP
announcements, and those who only want RFC announcements and not the
other stuff can subscribe only to rfp-announce -- it's an individual
choice.
