I'm pro. Even if only one person joins debian-gis who would not join
pkg-grass-general (or finds a message in an archive, ...),I consider
the move successful.
In fact, I think you should send your message also to the
pkg-grass-general list to get feedback.

I'm not the right person to judge how much work switching that list is
(eg all packages refer to the list), but I would also move towards
debian-gis-devel. It is more consistent, and if the debian-gis list is
created, we have the 'momentum' to change it, otherwise it will not
happen. Anyway, don't ask my opinion, but perhaps frankie can judge if
it is doable?
