Heh. I personally believe that a message sent by a mailing list *must*
have the mailing list as the originator: dkim, id, and whatever else.
And then there *should* be a way to reply "off list". Of course then you
have to preserve the original originator all the way to the beginning, so...
And even if "Message-ID MUST be present and MUST be unique", that
doesn't make the converse true: that two copies of the same message
*must* carry the same Message-ID.
