Well, sure. But Mailman is probably not alone in this regard. In case it
wasn't clear from Tony the Tiger's post (everything was wrapped in my
copy), here's how those headers all look in-the-raw:

X-Copyright: (C) Copyright 2015 Stefan Ram. All rights reserved.
 Distribution through any means other than regular usenet
 channels is forbidden. It is forbidden to publish this
 article in the world wide web. It is forbidden to change
 URIs of this article into links. It is forbidden to remove
 this notice or to transfer the body without this notice.
X-No-Archive: Yes
Archive: no
X-No-Archive-Readme: "X-No-Archive" is only set, because this prevents some
 services to mirror the article via the web (HTTP). But Stefan Ram
 hereby allows to keep this article within a Usenet archive server
 with only NNTP access without any time limitation.
X-No-Html: yes

So he's got five headers, two of which you would clearly expect mail
software to recognize (X-No-Archive and Archive), two which must be for
human consumption only (X-Copyright and X-No-Archive-Readme). I'm not sure
about X-No-Html. A quick Google search for that header returned nothing
useful.
