It was never implemented as a standard replacement.

If the list is not anonymous, the name is usually available in the
From: header of the post. If the list is anonymous, it is often
because the poster should remain anonymous and not just because the
poster's email address only should not be revealed.

For these reasons, there was never much demand or motivation to do this.
