There is no fixed limit to the number of lists a Mailman installation
can support. The practical limitations are the total file space
required, the number of directory entries before searching the
directory becomes an issue and the total amount of email traffic. A
dozen lists would not be an issue at all.

I think there's a bit more to it than that when it comes to web server
and MTA integration, but why not just set up a dozen lists on the
hosted Mailman. I would think that if the host is willing to allow you
to set up your own Mailman, they would be willing to allow you a dozen
lists on the shared Mailman.
