The web UI will be different in MM 3 and may not work exactly as you
state above, but the function you look for will be there. No changes are
contemplated for Mailman 2.1.x.

These actions are currently logged, but no notices are sent. Notices
would be difficult to implement in Mailman 2.1.x because there is no
list method for notifying all owners/moderators except one.

This seems like a reasonable request for MM 3 if it isn't already planned.
