I believe his point is that, at present, anyone on this mailing list is 
supposed to have completed the CLA.  The marketing list doesn't have that 
requirement, so merging them would make it more difficult to keep track of 
what list members have what privileges and status.  Sometimes there will be 
discussions where the subject matter applies only to contributors that have 
completed the CLA.  Those discussions would become considerably more complex, 
and any measure of propriety would be lost.  Also, anything delivered through 
the mailing list that we would want to use elsewhere would have to be checked 
for an applicable CLA.  That requirement already exists on the Marketing 
list, but we have worked hard to eliminate that need on this list.  While 
this does not stand alone as a reason not to merge the lists, it is one of 
many factors to be considered.
