Many people find this rather inconvenient. If you receive mail through
a number of addresses and use different ISPs, you end up registering
all your addresses or -- worse -- just don't post.

IIRC apache lists use spam filters, judging from cocoon-dev they work
quite well.

So? Someone spending hours writing one how-to or writing a long and
good reply to a cocoon-users question, covering the whole topic, may
not send it in? She / he needs to subscribe to cocoon-docs first?
That's not really "open", is it. 

Anyway, this can still be done *if* it turns out to be such a mess.
