I think Simon may have hit on the best solution. See his "Stop it" post.
I'm sorry to say, but all these comments about "sinister" motives for
off-list discussions strikes me as a bit paranoid. What about any
private messages on IRC? Are they off limits too? For all the rest of
us know, there could be a conspiracy being plotted by you and Onno on
IRC via pm. Yes, that was an absurd joke, but, honestly no more absurd  
than your reaction to my wanting to discuss some ideas amd do some
brainstorming - with people who are interested in finding a solution to
the structure issue.
