I don't think you'll have much luck with this.  Your best bet is
probably to examine the headers for each list as you subscribe, and
create a new handler for it if necessary each time.

You could try this.  I'd bet that most popular MLMs already have
wishlist bugs to support RFC2919, but if you find any that don't it's
probably a good idea to file one.

btw, I filter debian lists via X-Mailing-List: .
