However, the Friend Lists lack more granular controls, such as different privacy restrictions for each Friend List.

    No controls yet, but they are clearly going there. From their feature announcement.

    "This is just a start. Expect to see lots of new Friend Lists features in 2008 that will
    give you more control over the information you share on Facebook and who you share
    it with."

    I wish them luck on the user-interface, the back-end is the easy part.
