Currently, ASF infra provides mail forwarding and sending capability for 
committers, but no-one else.  Committers are people who have shown clear 
merit (i.e. they've been voted in by one of our project communities) and 
also have signed an iCLA, so we have some sort of relationship with them.

Personally, I would not envision allowing any new me@oo.o email 
addresses to be created, unless they're for committers (who should 
probably use an id instead).  I don't quite know what to do 
with the many existing aliases, however.  Short term we certainly can 
keep them (seem useful to people) but long term we would indeed need to 
see how 1) infra would support it, and 2) how the future PMC would 
provide oversight and manage any account issues (oh, yeah, that's your 
(3) above.
