Yes, ARC is designed for this and we are working on implementing ARC for
Mailman 3 but not 2.1.

ARC is a way that that I as an intermediary can say that I certify that
the message I received passed DMARC, but I transformed it in a way that
will cause DMARC to fail, but if my signature validates, downstream
should accept that DMARC passed.

The problem is downstream has to trust me. If I'm gmail.com, I'll
probably be trusted. If I'm msapiro.net, probably not. Python.org, who
