I didn't address this in my previous reply, so for completeness - it's
not a privacy issue, it's a performance issue because it requires a
separate SMTP transaction with the full message for each recipient.

OTOH, there are other benefits such as being able to VERP all message
sends for better bounce processing at no extra cost and being able to
include personalized information in message headers and footers such
as is done on the mailman-users list.
