I realize that.

Not so often, IMO. And when they do, the thread can be moved to emacs-devel.

The same is true for discussions in bug-gnu-emacs and help-gnu-emacs:
Whenever a discussion turns into a discussion about development, emacs-devel
can be appropriate. It is not necessarily the case that a report to
emacs-pretest leads to a discussion about development.

However, as I said, based on the previous thread on this topic, I think most
people do not share my preference for separate lists for pre-release bugs
and development.
