There are sufficient email clients that will use reply-to without prompting, causing accidental on-list replies (potentially far more damaging and embarrassing!) that I'm opposed to doing this. That's ignoring the 'traditional' arguments against reply-to for lists (which aren't terribly strong these days).

(Some email clients have dedicated commands and functionality for mailing lists. Sadly most don't, leaving us in a least of multiple evils situation.)
