Let me add to what Jon Carnes said about this.

1.  You are right, just change the moderation bit for the users who want 
to post.

2.  I host several lists where the moderator isn't on the list of users 
who can post.  Of course a moderator can always approve his or her own 
post, but if it happens infrequently, it works just fine.  After all, 
the people who can post may not have the time or the technical 
inclination to also be moderator.
