Thanks Chuck. I don't believe it would be very difficult. One would set the 
mailing list options in majordomo (or mailman, or other list management 
programs) to not automatically approve new subscribers, but instead hold them 
in a moderation queue. Each constituency would be able to have someone in the 
moderation queue (moderation just for subscriptions, not for each actual 
post!), and that person could verify whether a new subscriber was a 
constituency member. If so, they'd approve that new subscriber.

One could have a separate process for "special" people, e.g. former Board 
members, etc. (are Vint Cerf or Esther Dyson still following ICANN?) who wish 
to stay involved or at least stay subscribed.
