I agree that it would be better to munge the reply-to

reply-to isn't to be munged.
Consequence: Just hit Reply-To-All when replying.

But then there are of course certain *** people, who
complain that they got an unasked for CC. To those:
Read the article! It's easy enough to filter out mails
which were adressed to "you" and to the list
