Another use case comes up when coming back from temporarily disabled
delivery where you want to participate in an ongoing discussion. I've
always dreamed of a ml-request at listdomain function that retransmits
any messages in References to me.  It's clear that MM has to delegate
this to the archiver.

... indicating your internet connection is by orders of magnitude
better than mine :)

To get on topic again: regarding address obfuscation in the archives,
I noted:

  - obfuscate by default,
  - the archive admin may choose not to obfuscate but this fact
    will be stated clearly on every archive page à la:
    Email addresses are visible per choice of mailto:archiv-owner.
