While I don't have a strong opinion, getting two copes of the same 
message (usual "reply all") behaviour is suboptimal. I've the "please CC 
me when replying to list" .sig for lists where people do it a lot -- not 
that I've been on many lately.

The BBS/webforum convention is "private message" that may or may not 
come with "PM sent" note in the discussion thread. I think that's the 
reasonable way of doing it and that a MUA, when replying to a ML post, 
should give the user 2 options: "reply to list" and "reply off-list".

Since the list should rewrite the From header for DKIMARC, these would 
correspond to list-post/from and reply-to resp.
