I consider this undoable. The list owner had to split every list
into two, one with the mangling and one without it. And
subscribers would have the chance to choose which one they want
to receive. No sane admin would like to go that route, I guess.

It could all be as simple as "Don't fiddle with user supplied or
user owned fields" -- is anyone to remember the former Reply-To:
accidents? But that would be too easy, it seems.
