I think that if you're in a members-only room and you remove someone
from the admin list, you'd expect all lists to be as they were prior
to this act, except the admin list to not contain this person. That
is: I would not expect removing people from the admin list to put them
into another list. If this *is* what's desired, a user can logically
remove from admin and add to members.
