Point, but that is almost never the case.

Putting up a big scientific library in the middle of
the city doesn't lead to the schools and the public
libraries starting to neglect science.

And we should not underestimate people. If they can
find Emacs in SO, they can find the Emacs SX site, no
doubt.

People will still ask about Emacs all over the place,
only those questions will be moved to the Emacs-specific
site.
