Hi Adrian,

I previously enquired off list if the W3C Mail servers could be configured
in such a way as to a) establish a mailing list that "auto" inserted the
[group] prefix to all emails from that list, and b) if those mailing list
posts could also forward a copy of any correspondence from said sub-list to
the main list. 

This way, if anyone wanted to subscribe to particular list ([foo]), they
would only get emails posted to that list (all automatically prefixed with
the [identifier]) while at the same time funneling all of those lists to the
main list.

I re-float this idea now in a more public way. Is this something that could
be achieved, and would it address the problems that have surfaced?
