Yeah, I'm aware of that page. I checked with Casey before going with
wikimedia-l. Given that the -l suffix is still in place with so many
lists, and given the pain involved in changing it, we agreed to keep
-l in place at least for root-level lists (project-level / meta-level,
like wikipedia-l, wikimedia-l and wikien-l), whereas new more
domain-specific lists are generally created without the -l suffix.
