If you need a hand with the JEP let me know (or with having a reference 
implementation as ive looked at doing this in the past). I started to 
write some stuff up too as it seems the only real solution to this 
discussion is probably just a good old competition between the two 
approaches and see which the community likes best (my bet would be the 
more extensible, more reliable, less hacky, more generic, more 
de-couplable solution, but we will just have to see).

It might be easier to implement if you use 
listname at smartcast.server.net/md5, then you can still cleanly address 
the list but also detect whether

Just have a look at my posts on this subject an IQ based approach seems 
like the best and most generic way to me.
