I would suggest keeping it simple, throwing less variables / things to go
wrong in the mix, and just migrate the list as-is and consider a list name
change further down the road.
That's my feeling too. There have been plenty of folks in recent
months coming in to the list to ask questions and participate in
discussions. Without a plan in place to go through all the places
where we reference this list already and fix those, I'm not in favor
of moving at this time, but we can certainly reconsider down the road.
