You did say that and I just didn't check it out.  Is there any reason 
to not let them do this?  My sponsoring organization is involved in a 
lot of public education kinds of things, and want to get the word 
out.  Is there a negative, or spam risk, or something to letting them 
archive?  And ... finally, why do they need multiple subscribes to 
the same list?

Sorry if I am asking to many questions -- I know you aren't their 
representative or defender.
