Option to supress "msg has implicit dest" behaviour?

I would really like to see an option to disable the "message has implicit
destination" behaviour. Here's why:
I run several lists for each of several Internet domains. I do this by
having each list having a specific name which includes the domain, eg.:
My sendmail virtusertable then has an entry to redirect "members" to the
members at domain1.org members-domain1 at vintners.net
members at domain2.org members-domain2 at vintners.net
Thus, the list members need not include the redundant domain name in the
members at domain1.org
works, as well as:
members-domain1 at domain1.org
(Perhaps there's a better way to achieve this configuration, where mailman
is serving multiple domains -- please feel free to point me in the right
In majordomo this configuration worked just fine as it wasn't smart enough
to care. mailman on the other hand, does a better job protecting its
lists, and rightly disallows implicit addressing. For some lists I run,
this is desirable behaviour.
However, as described above, I'm willing to accept the tradeoff of not
doing this checking in order to allow aliasing for some other lists.
So, my feature request would be to add a checkbox on a config. page that
allows control of this checking.
Thanks for listening!
