[Mailman-Developers] Two patches for site-wide configuration

I've written two small patches for Mailman that add the following

site_hide_list_options.patch, sourceforge number 1164457

  Lets the site administrator stop list owners from changing certain
  configuration options. Example is to stop the list owner making
  someone else the owner.

transform_address_hook.patch, sourceforge number 1164464

  Gives a hook into the add member routines that allow the subscribers
  address to be changed before it is added to the list. This could be
  dangerous if used incorrectly, but is needed for sites that have two
  "identical" domain names, such as "leicester.ac.uk" and "le.ac.uk".

Any comments on these patches would be most appreciated! Is there a
better way of doing these things, or are there any improvements that
could be made to the patches?

Patches apply to 2.1.5.
