I've used it before as a site admin to mail lists saying that the list
will be closed for whatever reason (since it supports using the site
password to approve stuff).

Personally, I think a combination of 2, 3 & 4 - each user can set a
GPG/etc key or a password they use for approving messages. Then MM
would check the signature and or the Approved psuedo/header against
the key/pass of the users who have high enough privileges (site
admins, site staff, list admins, list moderators, etc).
