I also like the idea of calling the list ppc64 to distinguish it from previous PPC versions.

Apologies, perhaps a bit of cart before the horse on my end.  The current fedora-ppc@ list is focused on "List for discussion of fedora on the ppc platform, particularly Apple Macintosh centric".  With the current revival effort of the Power architecture in Fedora as a secondary arch, the team working on that is primarily focused on ppc64.  While there are certainly are similar challenges from a release engineering perspective, it seems appropriate to me to just call the new list what it focused on ... ppc64@lists.fedoraproject.org.  

I fully expect there to be knowledge sharing between ppc and ppc64, however very little of the install media produced for ppc64 will be useful for non-IBM hardware.
