This would have to be done on the MTA level, since I believe the
handling of list-owner in mailman is pretty simplistic (i.e., pull a
variable and redirect the mail).

Alternatively, you can always implement reasonable spam filtering
technologies at the MTA level to keep spam away from mailman (which is
where it belongs. Far, far away from mailman.)
