I am using Gnus. I have it setup to send followups to the list only.
When I do a followup it goes to the list, a reply goes to the sender
and a "very wide reply" goes to both. I wonder what the group-reply
command in mutt does.

A simple reason could be that it is not supported by their MUA.

I agree that it would be nice. But, due to the fact that it is not a
formal standard you can not expect everybody's MUA to support it.
This should not prevent you from promoting MFT. ;-) Only until it is
a standard it is not an universal solution.
