You are correct, as long as the SPF and DKIM align you can set a
restrictive DMARC policy.  In addition to your p=none, you should add
ruf= and rua= stanzas so that you can see today what impact your present
DMARC settings have.

DMARC on your list domain will also help with any delivery issues for
list notifications, as well as any DMARC wrapped posts.

Further, you can test your setup by creating a test list, and then
subscribing and sending a list email to any of these:

  check-auth at verifier.port25.com 
  autoreply at dmarctest.org
  autorespond+dkim at dk.elandsys.com
  check at dmarcanalyzer.com
  checkmyauth at auth.returnpath.net
