Howdy,

Any strong reason it shouldn't be "namedroppers@ietf.org"?  That list
name has a lot of history behind it, and having a consistent thread of
conversation connected to the name, if not its host, seems to me worth it.
An alias from dnsext@ietf.org to namedropper@ietf.org could be kept for
those wanting the WG Name pointer.

Full disclosure:  I was briefly the list monkey at SRI who kept
namedroppers@sri-nic
up, and I am likely being nostalgic.
