Fine with me, either way.  I waffled on the name anyway.

It's not just list-specific, it's specifically for the use of lists,
not users.  As such it seems reasonable to me that it would be
prefixed "List-".

For anything related to Reply-To/Mail-Followup-To, it's probably a
pretty long road.  I wouldn't mind having an RFC in my cv, though.
(It is *not* going to List Domain Signing Policy, though, that can of
worms I'll feed to the fish.)
