Quite right.  Beyond the standards theology, there is the practical
problem that where the message list in your inbox used to tell you who
wrote the list messages, now it all seems to come from the list alias.
In my world, some people's contributions are a lot more interesting
than others, and losing the info about who wrote what makes all lists
less useful.
