Mailing lists for specification of enhanced metadata in Java SE 8

Once created, will these mailing lists appear (for subscription) on
mail.openjdk.java.net, alongside the other (existing) lists ?
Is your intent that (the traffic on) both mailing lists are publicly
archived, or is -experts traffic to be more "closed".
Would you expect the experts to subscribe to both lists, so they can
see/respond to discussion in -observers ?
Would you expect interested observers to subscribe to both lists, so
they can see the pronouncements of the experts in -experts ?
Do you expect the traffic on -experts to be moderated, whilst that on
-observers is unmoderated ?
I'm trying to understand the working distinction between these two
lists, so I understand (as an interested observer) how I should interact
