Even if you did paste it into the web create UI, Mailman wouldn't accept
it. Perhaps the most important reason why not, is that the list name is
the local part of the list posting address and per RFC 2821, an email
address MUST NOT contain characters outside the printable us-ascii
(decimal 32-126) range.

Systems MUST NOT define mailboxes in such a way as to require the use in
SMTP of non-ASCII characters (octets with the high order bit set to one)
or ASCII "control characters" (decimal value 0-31 and 127). These
characters MUST NOT be used in MAIL or RCPT commands or other commands
that require mailbox names.
