I guess we don't know yet if Zanata alrerady has some feature in the 
pipeline :-)

I agree we don't have reinvent the wheel but it should be with least 
maintenance effort. I think - as you indicate - that requires some 
(semi-)automatic process to reliably subscribe Zanata users to the 
respective language lists and probably to unsubscribe if they leave the 
team. I don't know if that's technically feasible or who can do that.
