My quibbles:

  I specifically don't want to see Mailman under a "...or any future
  version of the GPL..." such that it could become subject to an
  Affero-like license.

  I'm uncomfortable with unconstrained re-licensing.  Specifically I
  dislike the idea of (for example) an MIT/BSD licensing fork which
  would allow the third party to then relicense Mailman again under a
  license they made up.  I'd be happier with a constraint on the
  relicensing forms which stated that third parties would only be
  allowed to use the code under the license they acquired it under.
