Not without modifying the Mailman/Cgi/create.py module which produces
and processes the page.

The alternative is for the list creator to go immediately to the list
admin pages and set real_name and description. Granted, this is not as
convenient as having it on the create page and is not "enforceable",
but it's the best you can do without hacking create.py.
