As noted separately (but I want to be clear in correcting my error), 
this is already the case.

Those recent jobs postings on the announce list obviously were approved
by a listadmin, probably Larry Platzek -- who has been doing essentially 
all the work of keeping the lists going, per my understanding.

I tend to defer to the people who get the work done, all other things being
equal.  ;->  (It's not the policy I'd personally choose, though.)
