I don't know if this is relevant, (and I'm sure Eric will let me know
if it isn't!) but the Sheltie list does the above. They have about 8
categories, maybe more, with a single category that can only be used
by the administrator (ATTN) and a CHAT category for miscellaneous

The interesting thing about this is that you cannot post without using
one if these categories in your subject line--the mail bounces back to
you otherwise--and you can subscribe to whatever headings you think
you might find useful (i.e., I'm not interested in breeding, so I
unsubscribed to the BREE subject, but I am interested in performance
dogs, so I do subscribe to the PERF heading).

There are enough headings that you can pretty much put anything you
might want to post under one of them, and anything else falls under
