Perhaps just the weight of history, and/or trying to keep the barriers to
participation as low as possible.  Speaking as zodb-dev's list admin, I'd be
happy to restrict posting to members, *if* people don't object to the idea.
I spend an increasingly resented part of each day doing list-admin triage
(for zodb-dev and about 6 other mailing lists).

A predictable irritation is that Mailman's answer to "member?" is based on
the posting's sender's email address, but many people post from more than
one account.  If you want the default action for non-member posts to be
"hold for review", I won't do it -- I can't afford the additional time sink.
"reject" is the no-manual-intervention default action, but it would place a
new burden on members posting from non-member accounts (their posts would be
rejected, at least until they asked the list admin to add their other
posting accounts to Mailman's list of non-members to accept -- and they
would need to do that on a per-list basis).
