Would it be acceptable to have a namedroppers@ietf.org alias, or is it
necessary to create the list under the name namedroppers@ietf.org and
have an alias from dnsext@ietf.org?

If the latter, does anyone want to address Bill Manning's point that,
given that namedroppers has not always been the address for _this
working group's_ mailing list, reusing that list name for this WG
might be confusing?
