Thanks guys - I have never messed with LMTP. It looks like it indeed is appropriate for local delivery (I am starting to read up on it now). I'll have to do some more Postfix experimenting!
I do not have Mailman 2.2 installed on my mail server (I am at 2.1.9), so I cannot try it out immediately, but I will keep this in mind, and I *think* it is a way to solve the issue I have, especially if LMTP would be better to use even for my non-mailman virtuals anyway (I'll play around with this).
However, if the only reason to use LMTP would be to allow Mailman's virtual stuff to work (and if there are disadvantages to using it), I could imagine that having a config variable for a destination domain might still be useful for non-LMTP cases (again, I need to study LMTP a little more).

In mailman-2.2, Postfix.py is considerably patched from the current version, especially making use of LMTP interface. New configuration output is summarized in

In this model, your '@localhost' corresponds to '@dom1.example.com' and all your list and personal maiboxes are to 'dom2.example.com'. You need no individual listname(-subqueue) destination in aliases/virtual/transport files. Only one line dom2.example.com lmtp:localhost:8025 in transport file. You only have to manage /etc/postfix/virtual for personal accounts.
Is this suffice your needs?
The other thing is that you'll get the individual -subqueue entries if you don't want to use LMTP_ONLY_DOMAINS (presumably because you can't create a separate subdomain for your lists). Right?
I realize that in context, this is confusing. In Mailman 2.2 if you
don't use LMTP_ONLY_DOMAINS, you'll get the individual -subqueue
entries in the transport file, but I believe you will not have name
collisions because the same entries do not need to be added to the
alias files. LMTP delivery rocks! (Thanks to Tokio :).
