As Mailman is open source software, and as this new design is a significant improvement to the current default design (well done to everyone that's contributed to it!), couldn't a sans-Wikimedia-logo version be contributed back to the Mailman project as a potential new standard design? Perhaps that might make future upgrades easier?
