I don't think it's worth the bother.  openstack-dev would still receive 
most of the traffic.  Once you add back the traffic from people 
cross-posting, posting to the wrong list, yelling at people 
cross-posting or posting to the wrong list, etc. I'd expect 
openstack-dev's traffic to stay about the same.  It'll just be one more 
list for most of us to subscribe to.

The thing that would help with message volume would be splitting 
openstack-dev by subproject.  (Except for those who would need to follow 
most of the projects, who would still get just as much mail plus the 
extra noise from people posting wrong.)
