I have no problem with the "munging" of the "reply to". That is indeed how I
expect a mailing list to work. What I've been seeing is that I've got to do
a "reply to all" to get things to the list instead of a simple "reply". If
Simon's postings had been directly to the list, I believe a simple reply
would have worked, but instead I keep finding myself needing to do a
reply-to all to get things back to the list. (for example, to get a reply to
the list for this e-mail.) Something's different WRT to xml-dev then the
other lists I work with...
