Does that actually work?  Although 10 is too many (I don't think I've
ever seen a non-spam/troll with more than 5 including the list on the
lists I manage), most of the lists I manage have occasional valid
reasons for cross-posting or adding non-member recipients.  I would
think the inconvenience would be greater with restriction to 1.
