It allows filtering, but not replying, a key issue with discussion
lists. And if you want to start thinking of ways of encoding both in
the To and dealing with it automatically, you end up with chaos --
better off to foster a proper header.
What I'd like to see happen, personally, is that we take list-id and
extend it slightly by teaching clients the concept of
"reply","reply-all" and "reply-list", where reply-list only works if
list-id is set. that, I think, removes 99.9% of the arguments on BOTH
sides of the "coerce reply-to" religious war....

that's a whole different religious war.. (grin)
