That's easy enough to explain: Mailman was written in a age when
sysadmin == Mailman admin (and often, == list owner/admin/moderator)
was the primary use case.  So, the shell is the UI.  Virtual hosting
services and large organizations adopted Mailman without contributing
patches to enable such features as needed in their environment.

These issues should generally be alleviated in Mailman 3, but that's a
project that has been ongoing for several years.
