What is the reason for non-membership?  The reason I ask is that the
obvious solution with existing facilities is for such senders to
subscribe, set no-mail to true and receive-acknowledgment to true.

Not that I know of.  I find it hard to imagine a use case where it
makes sense to notify people who should not be members of the list
about delivery of their posts.  On the other hand, I get enough junk
mail as it is -- I think the majority of users would find an automatic
response annoying.

It could be implemented easily enough, I suppose.
