You can use that field for anything you want. The biggest potential
downside I see is when DMARC mitigation is applied to a message. If the
original post is
From: John Doe <jdoe at example.com>
the DMARC mitigated message will be
From: John Doe via list <list at example.com>
However, if the original is
From: jdoe at example.com
without a display name, the DMARC mitigated message will be
From: xxx via list <list at example.com>
where xxx is the contents of that field. A similar situation occurs when
a list is fully personalized so each post is addressed To: the
recipient. In that case the post sent to jdoe at example.com will be addressed
To: xxx <jdoe at example.com>
where xxx is again the contents of that field.
