No doubt there are plans in progress.

Meantime, you can achieve very flexible screening by front-ending
mailman's submission address with procmail, or any one of several
other filters.

I myself wouldn't even consider operating a mailing list without
a screening filter on the front end.  That's what we did with our
Majordomo lists, and that's what we do now that all our lists
have been moved to Mailman.
