For me, the current behavior of the ietf lists is perfectly fine.

It is very nice to see the mailing list in the subject. It is also
very nice to have a proper From header.

That's why I proposed a per-subscriber setting such that only those
who are actually stupid enough to reject or otherwise drop mail based
on DMARC have to see mangled mailing list traffic.

There no technical reason for a one-size-fits-all solution. So let's
stop investigating those types of solutions.
