Always a good idea.

% often subscribed under different addresses than they use to post, and I=
% assume that the admin approves them, if the list is closed.

I just have to ask this; I hope it doesn't come across confrontationally:
why on earth would you assume that?  List moderation is generally a very
time-consuming and yet thankless chore, and such behavior needlessly
increases the workload.  If the list is closed, the list is closed;
why on earth should you [routinely!] be permitted to post from a
non-subscribed address?
