I'd be really surprised if that ever becomes the default, because there are 
so many other ways in which backscatter can be generated -- either by 
Mailman, or any other MLM.

Yes, in the future I would hope there would be options available to the site 
admin, or ideally also to the list admin, to reduce backscatter generation, 
but they should address all potential sources of backscatter and not just 
the aliases.
