Sounds strange. But is moderation really needed?
Unless spam gets out of hand ofcourse.

List-Header is good.
I noticed the change right away because my old filter rule for the list
didn't match anymore. But that's okay, List-Id is much better. :)
I only wondered that after the change there was no ezmlm in the header.
Whenever a mailing list that I was on had switched in the past
it always was from X to ezmlm. ;)
