I'm also in favour of having this possibility.
I think the wiki's Talk:Annnn pages would be the ideal place for that.
There should be a link next to each sequence (at least when it is
displayed in "full screen mode" as in oeis.org/Annnnnn) of the form
"Discussion about (edits of) this sequence.", leading to that Talk page.

How about the "Talk" page associated to the "Q & A for the new OEIS" page ?

Indeed, the seqfan list is flooded these days with discussions which
do not concern the sequences but only the wiki. I think that should be
Maybe new questions can be raised on the seqfan list, but should
include (or simply consist in) a link to a wiki page where the actual
discussion takes place.
Then those who are interested can contribute without bothering others.
