Maybe bad etiquette to respond to my own post, but I figured out the solution.
Seems you can subscribe to the mailing list without actually receiving messages
sent to the list. (You all probably already knew that.  But I'm a mailing list

So, there really doesn't seem to be a problem with that solution.  The
"moko-gmane" would automatically subscribe the user to the list associated with
the subforum they post in and just set it to "disable mail delivery".
