And sublist-a may require @sublist-b in it's accept_these_nonmembers
and so forth, although this can often be avoided by adding the
umbrella-bounces address as a member with delivery disabled on each

Adding the umbrella-bounces address to the sublist's
accept_these_nonmembers is not the same, and generally won't work
unless USE_ENVELOPE_SENDER is Yes in mm_cfg.py.
