A later move out of the Incubator would be a non-issue if 
(a) the incubator ezmlm would set the List-Id (currently none at all) or 
Mailing-List header to the "final" id from the get-go.
(b) the incubator posting address stayed alive (as an alias) even after 
we're out of the Incubator.

I CC'd the Incubator ML as this is probably a global issue.
