I'm all for experimentation and being adaptive as new things come along, and I'm obviously supportive of the DMARC effort. That said, I hope that these are going to be configurable options, defaulted "off" for backward compatibility. This is because:
Current MM3 doesn't have a great way to expose plugin configuration options to the REST API, which is what a web ui would access to control this stuff. I've thought about it a lot, so I think I know how I'd do it, but there's details to be worked out and code to be written around this.
(a) the second bullet above is a significant departure from current use (as I understand it), and fails the test of least surprise if we were going to suddenly see that MM3 does things quite differently than previous versions or, indeed, other packages; and
Mailman has support for anonymous lists, which can rewrite the From header to substitute the mailing list's posting address for the original author's address. I frankly don't know how much that feature is used in MM2.1, if at all.
