Ah, OK, I thought we're wondering in general where these addresses are

I've been contacted on *-owner once or twice.

Having Mailman use address@hidden instead of ``direct'' addresses
makes sense for having a generalized scheme that applies to all lists,
address@hidden, and in case that more than one person is
administrator of the list, all of them are reachable through one email
address, cf. <>.  Both
of these are not really strong arguments for having address@hidden
addresses, though, so I wouldn't mind removing them if that is what you
had in mind.
