If only subscribed people are allowed to post, there is little work to 
be done for real.

Isn't this a given anyway with most free software related mailing lists?

I am left wondering why this would be an issue at all?

What is there that needs to be moderated? Just the non-subscribed posts 
need to be cleared out from time to time. If you have an autoresponse to 
tell people to subscribe and repost their valid questions, then even 
that doesn't need to be a high frequency thing.

Again, why is this being brought up/worried about?

s/may/will and should/

I don't think flashrom getting its own mailinglist is going to confuse 
people (quite the contrary), or is going to create a shortlived 
mailinglist, or is uselessly going to split up the flow of information 
or is going to diffuse communication. I believe that the current state 
and development pace of flashrom, and the massively growing and grown 
userbase warrant a flashrom at coreboot.org. It all depends on how much 
work this is to set up on coreboot.org.
