There is nothing that requires this mail to be delivered directly to
that or any other file. You could just as well put

mailman-loop: root

or any other deliverable local address in /etc/aliases. Also, as I
touched on in my other reply, if the owner of the 'mailman' list is an
always deliverable local address, there will never be any legitimate
mail to mailman-loop.
