The default is to always send a copy to the person you are replying

For what definition of "person"? The sender of a list message that came by way
of the list is the list. But for (without which) having subscribed to the list,
I would not get messages composed by list subscribers using the list as
exclusive destination address. Logic requires the destination resulting from
using a reply button to be the list from whence it came, not the originator of
the message's content.
Good response, however,
Without the originator of the message's content, there would be
no list.

You can't have one w/o the other, so you honor both with a
reply -- the default when you hit 'Reply-All'.
