I can recall not one letter directly from a person's MUA to me with
"Reply-To:" differing from "From:". And I had much correspondence since
1996: on most lists I use digest mode, counter of sent by me letters
in my MUA shows currently 54532, I receive about 4.3 times more
letters than I send (i.e. I received about quarter million letters).

Yes, I did consider. The fact that many newbie members on my
relatively small (227 members today) list haven't "Reply to all" button
overrode other concerns.
