Because it's a waste and an annoyance for those who use an email
Because a message can be posted to more than one such list
simultaneously, at which point the replies will get these prefixes

Because many people prefer to organise their incoming messages by
attributes other than which list distributed the message.
Because deficiencies in a web interface should not dictate mangling
the message to accomodate those deficiencies.
