Only if you're using a MUA too old or disfunctional to be worth discussing.

All reasonable mail readers support at least `reply to sender' and
`followup'/`wide-reply' commands, and the latter should do what you want.

By making Reply-To: point to the list, you make these two different
commands do the same thing, thus depriving the user of the choice.
