You understand that this procmail recipe deals with _duplicate_ mails,
do you? It it not meant to dump important messages. Or maybe I fail to
understand your objection...

What makes you think that? Again the recipe has nothing to do with your
filtering system. It's up to you to pre-filter mails (to|cc):you before
entering the mailing-list filtering recipie. Then again, if you're not
interested in CCs why pre-filter them at all?
