Yes, you can move it's directory out of lists/ if that is what you want.
Doing that will prevent all access to the list except for public
archives. Attempts to post, administer the list, validate for private
archive access, etc. will all fail. If you use Exim integrated with
Mailman as your MTA, post attempts will bounce because Exim will not see
the list. If you use an MTA with aliases, the post script will exit with
an error which the MTA may see and bounce the message or not. It may
depend on the MTA, and I'm not sure.
Nothing will actually break. bin/rmlist essentially does the same thing
except it will also remove aliases if MTA = 'Postfix'.
At some point in the future, you can move the directory back and
continue from where you left off.

I'm still having trouble understanding the whole picture of what your
problem is and why you want to do this, but I hope I've answered your
