I don't see a problem with rejecting non-subscribed addresses outright.
This is a discussion list so I think it is fair to require those posting 
to be part of the discussion.  Mailman allows a person to subscribe 
multiple addresses while only receiving mail at one so those people with 
multiple addresses they may post from have options too.
