The whole point of Reply-To is to allow the sender to specify where
replies should be sent.  There's no need for Mail-Followup-To.  I agree
that the list manager shouldn't set it, but there's nothing wrong with
it being privately set.

If you want your reply sent somewhere other than where the sender thinks
it should be going, then you should be cognizant enough to change where
the email is being sent and wouldn't care about Reply-To or M-F-T
