You can add folks via the web interface, but without the aliases, you could 
not forward mail to the list... at least not easily.

The aliases redirect emails into an executable script.  Without the 
aliases, you would have to run the executable script manually on a 
hand-crafted* email.

*hand-crafted like in the days of Samuel Adams when they used to carve 
emails into the chared bark of old sycamore trees...
