I understand where you're coming from, and I used to feel similarly.
I was accustomed to communities where developers had one mailing
list, users had another, and whenever a user asked a question on the
developer mailing list they were told to go away and bother the user
mailing list instead (not even a good, old-fashioned "RTFM" for
their trouble). You're probably intimately familiar with at least
one of these communities. ;)

As the years went by, it's become apparent to me that this is
actually an antisocial behavior pattern, and actively harmful to the
user base. I believe OpenStack actually wants users to see the
development work which is underway, come to understand it, and
become part of that process. Requiring them to have their
conversations elsewhere sends the opposite message.
