It's something we could consider, but this isn't how it's been discussed
so far.

I'm sort of against sending these to -announce, but only because we have
a number of people who parse that list with automated tooling, not
because folks actually read it. I don't want to change expectations and
tooling without a good reason. I could see sending to the centos main
list though.
