I think this was discussed recently.

IMHO this would generally be a bad thing:

(1) malicious person or malware could pre-register a key as easily as
they can send mail to the list

(2) honest person with useful info for list members often will not have
access to the signing key (or even to openpgp software) at the machine
they send mail from.
