I think he just means that current-users is for technical issues related
to running -current, not for political issues.

netbsd-help or netbsd-advocacy might be more appropriate.

As I see it, it would take a whole lot more effort from groups like core to
come up with formal public statements than to have informal in-camera
discussions. Since people are appointed to core for mostly their
technical ability/sense, it wouldn't be a good use of their time.

That doesn't mean there's no possibility of getting more information on
specific decisions - in fact I've seen such posts on the lists before,
I'm certain.
