This is what I have done for many mailing lists. — I subscribe with
one private address for email filtering and reply from another public
I suggest that the member also pick one and toggle the option to hide
(the non-public subscribed address) from other subscribers.

I don't see any obvious security related down sides to this. It does
open the mailing list up to messages (spam) from some additional
addresses. But I can't think of any cases where user at domain.tld would
be different than user+detail at domain.tld. I guess maybe some sort of
ticketing system /might/ do something like that. But I bet that the
intersection between such configurations and Mailman configured as Mark
is describing to be quite small.
