I see examples of the user+detail in RFC 3696, but like you I don't see
any reference as to how it is to be interpreted, just that it is allowed.

I can see how you come to that understanding. (Further I don't have any
problems with that understanding.)
The only thing that I see (and experience) is that it would be nice if
Mailman did something (even if it was non-standard) to support
user+detail format addresses. What that /something/ is or should be, I
have no idea.

I think this will fill the bill quite nicely.
