that people first check that they've got adequate DNS secondaries and 
backup MX records.

Improved archives would be nice, but that's not dependent on moving the 
list. There are already third-party archives of xml-dev with different 
degrees of reliability, completeness and selections of features. If we 
need another one there's nothing to prevent it.
