[Mailman-Users] A break of symmetry regard to generic address

Assume you have two addresses
generic at generic.dom
specific at specific.generic.dom
, and your mailman's SMART_ADDRESS_MATCH = 1 (default in Defaults.py).
If generic at generic.dom is a member, subscribe request from
specific at specific.generic.dom is rejected because of
`Already a member`. In turn, even if specific at specific.generic.dom
is a member, subscribe request from generic at generic.dom is accepted
gracefully. The consequence of the latter case is having both two
addresses in the list, which is considered conflict in the former case.
I cannot tell whether you should have only one or both two of them,
though I feel a break of symmetry. What do you feel about it?
I have tried above with mailman-2.0.8 .
