That is correct.

Your assumption is correct. The implementation of your idea is a bit
more difficult. Currently, no information other than email address is
kept for moderators and admins - they don't even have to be list
members - so provision for storing personal settings would need to be
made. Then, if we're going to have personal settings for moderators
and admins, we might want individual passwords too.

Anyway, this is a feature request, best submitted at
<https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=103&atid=350103> or the new
wiki at <http://wiki.list.org> (which may have a DNS issue at the
moment, but can be accessed at <http://wiki.mailman.atlassian.com/>).
Feature requests in the wiki should be added as comments to the
Development->Mailman 2.2 page.
