because you should send mail to the specific list according to the
topic. and that list is a read only cc of all the other lists. we could
have a misc group list for general topics as well. i just think the read
only cc list is useful for lurkers and others who want the big
picture. by having the reply-to set to the originating list, you can
still be involved in any thread you see.
