I think it makes sense to simplify the interface and have only one login page,
but ...

Subscribers need to provide their mail address (authentication identity) and
their password. Admin and moderators currently don't have to.

If we had only one login page, would that require admin and moderators to
provide an authentication identity too and not only their password? (At the
moment I believe this would be a benefit. One could have more than one admin
without having them share one password.)

Would that break any upgrade compatibility for none MM3 lists?
