I know that some do, some don't; but beyond that, I don't have
much of a feel for how it's done across the 'net.  I thought
that perhaps raising the subject for discussion here might provide
at least a few data points from this community.

Locally, I've delegated responsibilities equivalent to what I think
of as "listmaster" to people who are trained to work with Mailman
and majordomo, but not yet ready to dabble with sendmail and postfix.
I've also found it useful to add list-owners to the listmaster alias
expansion in order to add some transparency to the process.  (I split
this off from "postmaster" because most of that traffic doesn't pertain
to lists, and some of it involves private mail issues that don't need
to be exposed to list-owners.)

(Incidentally, I'm not aware of any current effort to update RFC 2142.)
