There are people contributing to a working group who are not 
subscribed to the mailing list.  There are probably people who are 
not actively following a working group who might attend a conference call.

Sending an email through ietf-announce@ is not that much work [1] 
[2].  If you broadcast the announcement to the entire community it's 
public.  You don't have to worry about the questions you asked above 
or conspiracy theories.
