Is none.  Only two things a server admin really does is create lists, and delete them.
Which use use the command line for for now.

Removal is command line.  To administer a list, just go to that lists page, and use
your site password (which you set with mmsitepass) instead of any other password,
and you'll "trump" their password and get your way.  Works on user pages too.

Those aren't policies so much as defaults; new lists are created that way for the most part;
old lists aren't affected, because they're settings are done at their individual setting pages..
