Well, no.  As I said, someone on mailman-users was confused by the
fact that newlist had done it, so that some other mailman bin/
command didn't recognize the both-case version of the name.
And it just seems wrong.  (Obviously the work would be identifying
the few cases where case really should be immaterial, but by default,
IMO, everything everywhere should follow the case originally
entered to newlist unless it causes a problem.)
