While this might be a good point, it's wrong and unhelpful to Marc's

IIRC, Marc, there's a bunch of stuff that does things like 
"get the Owner address for the list named mm_cfg.<site-list-name>".
Not that that couldn't be found and changed, but...that's how it
works currently.  Also, that way bounce handling happens for
those sorts of notification messages in the "normal" way.
