That assumes one is using git; I'm not, git stinks.

I'm really not alone in that. Not only do you get those annoying
messages, the people reading that list might get the discussion in
fragments, because some people that reply are subscribed and do not
require moderation while others do get caught in the moderation thing
and then delayed.
It also puts a burden on the moderator, do they allow the whole
discussion or only part. What if they deem the thing off-topic and want
to kill it, but then some of their whitelisted people do reply.
Cross-posting to moderated lists has been considered bad form ever since
I got on the interweb in the early 90s.
