The From: address can still be the poster's address. Reply-To is  
easy, reply-to-all is harder. You can still reply only to the poster:  
you reply to all and edit, just as you must do today to reply only to  
the list. This makes it easier to reply to the list (the typical  
behavior), but still allows replying to the poster. Furthermore, it  
reduces the number of duplicate emails received; a reply to the list  
(the most desired action) goes to one address, while reply-to-all  
goes to all addresses (without editing).
