Indeed. Moreover, we will need to make "apparently of somehow
diverging interest" teams work together, by pair, on several runs.
This will help all teams to get to know each other and work better
together. An example some Mozilla people suggested me is: making the
marketing and developers teams collaborate to recruit/improve their
beta-testers population (it benefits developers team and it requires
marketing insights for that). You can imagine a lot of cooperation
tasks like this.

There, it would help to have more atomic mailing-lists (per specialty)
but some other tool, empowering more cross-teams collaborations or
ad-hoc teams setups (mailing-list may not be the right solution here,
not sure what at this time).
