I would nominate one of the project leads to do this, and, I agree, it's a 
good idea.  I am on several lists where this sort of thing is done; one such 
list, the Broadcast mailing list, has a moderator who does a mailing list 
redirect to the off-topic list (called 'The Alternate Frequency') when a 
thread needs moderating.

Or, Dag, are you volunteering?  :-)  (A merry heart doeth good, like medicine, 
so be merry).
