Yep. But I don't see any real alternative, unless MARC is able (and 
willing) to

1. subscribe two lists to the same archive;

2. alias the archives so that dev@cocoon is available also as 

Actually, however, I see no harm in having our present *and* future list 
referenced by MARC as "xml-cocoon-dev": might be slightly misleading 
since it doesn't make clear that cocoon is now a TLP, but is our ego 
really so high? ;-)

Yes, moving is out of question (unless MARC guarantees some kind of 
redirect, but again this would be asking too much from a volunteer and 
unsponsored effort).
