It would work as you expect if you use -C when creating the list file.
The reason for this is that -C basically means "don't skip the DATABASE
entry". When you use -l without -C, you get a list file that doesn't
include the DATABASE entry. In the last step, you need both -C and
the DATABASE entry listed in the list file in order to have the CREATE
DATABASE command emitted.
We could possibly "fix" this by emitting the DATABASE entry during -l
with or without -C. I'm not sure if that would have any bad side
effects, but a quick test suggests that it will still skip the DATABASE
entry if it's listed in the list file but -C isn't given. Of course,
if you manually remove the DATABASE entry from the list file, you lose
