Why isn't this proposal going in the* hierarchy?  It
would seem to fit there.

Also, Usenet (including bionet.*) is open to anyone with access
to a Usenet news server and client software, thus unless you
intend to moderate the newsgroup (that is, read all articles
before allowing them to appear), you won't be able to effectively
restrict the traffic to researchers.

Many of the* newsgroups are moderated, and those that
aren't get a lot of traffic from people seeking free medical
consultations and advice.  I expect this newsgroup to have the
same problem, regardless of being placed in bionet.*.
