That sounds pretty reasonable to me. We've always encouraged submissions
to cc: the other relevant lists (i.e. linux-ext4 if it's an ext4-specific
patch) and would probably still encourage that, but even from the other
angle (keeping i.e. ext4-specific and btrfs-specific patches off the
xfs list) this sounds like a good idea.
