Actually, what I think would be better than individual configuration by 
option is a global option "Do not allow a list looser security than 
global".  So for example if the PRIVATE_ROSTER default was set to 1 (list 
members only), a list admin could set it to 2 (admin only) but not to 0 
(public).  This setting would also affect things like archive access, 
whether non-members can post to the list, etc.
