Indeed. I have reply, reply-to-all and reply-to-list one click or one key combination 
away, and as far as I know those features are present in almost all mail clients since 
several years, so ease of replying to list shouldn't be an issue.
On the other hand, I do not want messages intended to be private communications to end up 
on the list, which would happen more easily with munged headers.

So, count me in the leave-reply-to-alone camp.
