Existing subscribers are subscribers to ga.  That continues.

The whole point of this exercise is not to preserve the status quo.

As I understand it, there is no way to post directly to the "unfiltered"
list -- the only way that posts appear on either list is to post to
"ga"; the unfiltered list itself is read-only.  Therefore it doesn't
make sense to make the unfiltered list the default, as you describe.
