Well my POV on this is that you may have missed a valid use case:
Discussion of problems on a development branch.
From my experience, ubuntu-users@ is mainly toward to stable releases, and usually an user like my self (alpha/beta tester) gets really poor support there. At least on this list I expect to get some extra help to either fix my/our problem, or be pointed in the right direction, even if that is simply the case to go to LP and report it.
Basicly I expect the same treatment as I get on IRC support channels (ubuntu+1 and ubuntu-bugs).

Is that to much to ask?
