It's resource-intensive to do it that way, rather than bulk
delivery of the same message to many people, so I doubt it
will become a trend. I agree that re-writing the To field
is a bad idea, but it's hard to make the case that they're
doing you wrong. My lists use a special header that contains
the list name (rather than relying on "to", which might not
be set if BCC was used) so people can filter reliably. Some
vacation programs also ignore "precedence: bulk" and the
like, so maybe memail is counting on that?
