It is. That way we can have multiple people administer a category, etc.

You want me to create another pseudo user? is easy to do.

The planned way of doing things is basically to have a pseudo-user for
each category. Then anyone who is interested can just set up an email
watch on that psuedo user (go under "Prefs" then select email preferences

Some "legacy" ones are set up to still go directly to one user.

A (very) few people have requested mailing lists get cc'ed on some
categories, for which we've set up mailing list users, and had them
watch the categories too.
