Would we need to have :list-is, :list-matches, :list-contains, or can we get away with just :list, which would check for the exact match?

As far as I understood Ned, it is the list who decides on the exact match type : it is not up to the script to prescribe the matching. So "just :list".

Any use cases where :list-is, :list-contains ... make sense and "just :list" would be insufficient?

Ned has answered this nicely. I was thinking about substring matches (kind of simplified :matches), but this can be thought of as an implementation details. I.e. we can consider an external list to be black box.
