And it has already been pointed out several times why your
explanation is incorrect.
Very simple: Basically, the chat list is for everything
that's off-topic on all other lists. Legal and licensing
issues are off-topic on all other lists, so the correct
list would be chat@, by definition.
Another list that _might_ be somewhat related to these
things is the advocacy@ list. It's not perfect, but a
lot better than the current@ list which is only about
discussing the development (i.e. code) of the -current

Wrong. There is an apporopriate forum: chat@ (or maybe
advocacy@ if you prefer). You just refuse to use it and
continue to post to inappropriate lists.
If I were postmaster@, I would blacklist you if you
continued to violate the list chartes. Fortunately
I'm not postmaster at . ;-)
