[tdf-mirrors] renaming @documentfoundation.org mailing lists

quite a while ago, we have renamed the @libreoffice.org mailing lists to @global.libreoffice.org for technical reasons. I'd now like to do the same for the @documentfoundation.org mailing lists, namely
The reason behind is that I'd like to split up our mail system into two instances for reasons of load balancing and security. One should contain all private mailing lists as well as e-mail accounts, the other one should contain all public mailing lists. The fact that all our communication tools are on one system at the moment is quite unfortunate.
At @documentfoundation.org, we not only host public mailing lists, but also e-mail accounts. One way to achieve the distinction on the server side is to create a forwarding/transport in the mail system, but I'm not a friend of that, it has a few drawbacks. The other option is to rename the list part, and - like we did with libreoffice.org before - use @global.documentfoundation.org in the future, so each subdomain can be attached to its own MX record (mail server).
Before doing such a change that affects many users, I wanted to ask about your opinion. From a technical point of view, it is IMHO the best solution. Agreeably, it is a bit annoying to update all the website elements and links, and we can do the rename with enough time in advance, but would you generally support this approach?
