Clean, maybe, but Mark explained why the scheme is fragile even if you
can get participation.  The killer problem is personalization, but the
other problems are also intractable.  Serial numbers in the Subject is
a case where the variable content is not predictable by the author or
originating system.

It can, it just depends on high participation rates to be useful.  As
I pointed out, if you can get that participation, you don't need any
changes to Mailman, you just don't add footers to the body or list
tags to the Subject.

So why don't you try the experiment on some of your lists and see how
much participation you get?
