Yes, it's (usually) bad practice.  lsb-spec should be used for any
discussion related to the specification.  lsb-discuss should be used
for general-interest postings (that aren't especially technical).

I recently used both lists for announcements regarding the specification
meeting, so I would reach any company/group representatives who were
only subscribed to the general list.
