I'm subscribed to both now. ;-) The advantage to the NANOG subject
header was obviously it was resilient to e-mail address changes for the
list. A nice attribute given e-mails now come in from both
nanog at nanog.org and nanog at merit.edu addresses. Anyhow, I assume there
was compelling reason for the change.

Kinda makes you wonder what the purpose on the announce list is though. 
Are there actually people subscribed to nanog-annouce that aren't 
subscribed to nanog?
