This is similar to the pain mail server admins (and their associated 
support staff) went through when we (the Internet as a whole) had to go 
through the pains of closing open-relay mail servers following the spam 
deluge problems in the mid 90s.  Closing open relays was a PITA, but it was 
necessary to move on to a more secure and reliable mail delivery 
system.  Adapting to intelligent mailing list headers is a similar 
(although less urgent) problem.  Take the high road and be one of the 
leaders in making these changes that are "for the good of the Internet".
