My apologies for saying it backwards.

Members is specified as "mu".  legal-discuss is specified as "mu".
Per the documentation[1], this means that subscriptions are moderated
as well as posts from non-subscribers.

Members contains a "List-Post: <mailto:<#l#>@<#h#>>".  Legal-discuss does

We are discussing adding a corresponding List-Post to legal-discuss.
What, if any, other changes to the configuration of list-post should
we be considering if we were to do that?
