Right, that's why I said that it depends.

The media-types list is rather a special case, as it's *extremely*
active.  There are others like that, such as uri-review.

If you're not expecting many registrations very soon, and the working
group will close after the documents are done, then it makes sense to
use the jose list because by the time you start getting registrations
that list won't be active for the working group.

If you're expecting the jose list to have active discussion of
documents while registration requests are coming in, then it makes
sense to create a new list.

Use your judgment.
