While I find this very annoying too, under the Theory of Least Munging
I'm leary of hacking Mailman to do this kind of filtering.  I think
it's better to educate users -- in my experience most will reset the
defaults when the problem is explained in a friendly and helpful

That said, something I'd like to see happen in a future version would
be an extensible filtering framework.  This could be used to support
the feature you're looking for.
