Yes, that's the point.  Russ got onto me awhile back for complaining
about the OSI not listening, without sending mail to
osi at opensource.org.  So, I sent a message to osi at opensource.org with
the complaint that they have, for the past I think two years, managed
to not see on license-discuss.

There is no reason to think it is in the queue because it was never
actually listed as being in the queue; they are, for wont of a better
explanation, ignoring it.
