I don't think there's much of a pattern, and the haskell-i18n list is
a good counter-example.

haskell-cafe could just as easily have been cafe; there's no real need
for the haskell- prefix. All of the lists are @haskell.org, so there's
redundancy in the prefix. IMO, the only lists that need a prefix are
haskell-fr, haskell-prime, and haskell. And even haskell could be
renamed to announce.

You yourself expressed concern over the length of the address
haskell-beginners at haskell.org. My vote is still for
beginners at haskell.org
