I would vastly prefer having the Reply-To set correctly. I was amazed
when I read the policy because I knew these lists didn't set their
Reply-To, which seemed to be a very simply way of helping enforce
the policy.

(And just to push the point home, this is the second time I've sent
this mail because I forgot to "group-reply" the first time. Murphy's Law
no doubt).
