I believe it could be easier that the mailing list software left the
mailing list in the reply-header. The main issue is that when you hit
"Reply" the only one who is left in the headers is actually who sent the
email and if you hit "Reply All" obviously the author of the last email
is listed too.

There's a good reason why this haven't been done yet? Other mailing
lists which I've been subscribed use this.
