And lots of people (have to) use several different addresses,
subscribing with all of them isn't really an option, since you get
multiple copies of each mail then.

Redhat had a dummy list (with no traffic), which one could subscribe
with all used addresses and all subscribers to that list could post to
all other lists then. This is a quite reasonable way to do this.
