I guess that IS the reason (certainly most people do not
know how to even look at the headers, let alone 
understand them!).

BUT if the headers ARE supplied, then:

  (a) Help desk people can figure out how to help someone
      who can't unsubscribe from some list;
  (b) Programs can be written to perform list handling
      (smart mail clients - "press this button to unsubscribe")
  (c) Smart list users won't need to keep the initial 
      "welcome" message from the list to ensure that they
      know how to unsubscribe or whatever. 

Q: Does anyone know which MLM software supports
these headers (or alternatively definitely doesn't support
them yet)?
