Leading to some confusion!
At which point they can check the banned list, find they're no longer there, and thus come to the conclusion that they're no longer banned.

No, seriously, do you really think there'd be any confusion over people not knowing by now that certain people are no longer banned? As said, in most cases on the 'was banned but isn't anymore' list it all happened years ago. I don't think in any of the cases I'm talking about any potential for confusion is left.

As pointed out in my first post, that would be a good reason to keep people on such a list for about a month.
