As message have the same Message-ID the servers have to (or at least
should - I'm too lazy right now to check the RFC) considered it 'the
same' message (i.e. say - oh. I've already received this message).

I tend to use reply-to-all or reply-to-list if the latter is present.


PS. Please note that sometimes people do not subscribe to receive
messages. For example I asked a few times on various mailing lists for
help when I was not interested in general discussion on topic asking to
add me to CC.

If the mailing list replaced Reply-To header it would required
additional effort for responders instead of just pressing reply-to-all.
