Maybe. Or maybe not.
Are you suggesting we not bother with it, then, because of something that
might happen? Or what? I'm not sure where you're going here.
I personally don't see this as a problem. If spammers adopt it, the value
will still be bogus. If anything, it'll give easier options to blacklist
spam (remember when spamtools advertised themselves in headers? They
stopped...). And even if not, list-id is still a very good tool for explicit
whitelisting, by filtering on the content, not just the existance.
