The consequences will be:

IMHO this is a good thing to do.  This will make it clear to people
that PUPA is GRUB and what will happen to GRUB in the future, etc.

I'm not sure if it is a good idea to use bug-grub for GRUB2. What do you think? Is it better to create another mailing list? I sometimes feel that bug-grub is used for too many different purposes.

Well, I think the biggest problem isn't that PUPA and GRUB are
discussed on one mailing list.  The biggest problem is that requests
for help are send to bug-grub.

For the Hurd there are multiple mailing lists: bug-hurd, help-hurd and
hurd-devel.  Perhaps you could use something similar for GRUB.  I
think having separate mailing lists is not practical because many
discussions on pupa-devel are interesting for people on bug-grub too.


I have to agree with Marco. It's nice having -user or -help for questions, -devel for development and -bug for bugs in existing versions.
