Unfortunately that doesn't work with Kmail's reply-to-list, which means 
manual attention is needed when the thread is being intentionally cc-ed to 
eg a bug report.

I've seen too many arguments on this subject.  My 2 c as a Debian user / 
reader of Debian lists is that perhaps the CoC should be softened to say 
eg, "Note that it is considered best practice on Debian mailing lists to 
use the reply-to-list function of your email program, and to not cc someone 
who appears to be subscribed (unless they request otherwise)."
