I think life is much better if XFS follows the usual convention.  We
already drill into submitters heads that they should send patches and
questions to the list for the whole kernel, and the angry behaviour of
many maintainers when they get personal mail helps with that, too.

Given that we already have maintainers names listed, and the list in the
proper field I also can't see what this should buy us.
