Please explain how more fragmentation in this area is going to help
anything. It seems like you are aiming for one mailing list per dreamcast

Any OS specific stuff needs to go through the port-specific list, and
architecture specific issues can be cross-posted across those as well.
The only thing a dreamcast-specific list would be useful for would be
discussions of native development on bare metal that people don't see a
good fit for anywhere else. However, even that stuff is likely marginal
enough at this point that there is no reason to discourage such threads
from popping up on the OS-specific lists.

When you are already suffering from lack of activity due to your platform
being in its death throes, more mailing list fragmentation is definitely
not the answer.
