I'm lumping various in as well, which I'm not aware of Mailman being 
able to remove.


I think there are others that fall into the same category, but I don't 
recall them at the moment.

I agree that headers should not be modified between the sender and the 
recipient.  The catch is, I believe the mailing list is the recipient 
and a subsequent (re)sender of a very similar but different message.  As 
such, I think that DKIM (and related) headers in a message going to a 
mailing list are unrelated to DKIM (and related) headers in a message 
coming from a mailing list.
