[Mailman3-dev] Problem with the schema

If the account is the object that is subscribed to a list, then it seems
one could view an account as a form of a roster. That is, an account is a
named collection of email addresses where each address could have specific
delivery settings (ordinarily it would be just one address that gets the
message for a specific list).  The account roster would also ordinarily
just be a roster with a single administrator, the user/owner.

I'm not sure if this improves anything or is reasonable in the 
implementation, but the relationship comes to mind.
