turning archiving off and making it moderated the way it was (?) before
would resolve the issue I guess, right?

although it is running now, there is no guarantee that it would be
running as long as debian project exists.

list at lists.debian.org can be moderated by NY person too... If it has
to be a Debian developer, I can take the burden of the duty, but may be
anyone else (like you) could moderate it -- I am not sure since I never
owned a mailing list at lists.debian.org

probably a good point -- I don't see huge difference though and we can
comment on a bug to make it 'social' mailing list which I guess would
be different only in the name and description
