Periodically, this is suggested. And, so far previously, rejected.
A few folk oppose it because THEY don't need it because THEIR mail
programs are successfully sorting by the header line of:
"List-Id: "General Discussion: On-Topic and Off-Topic Posts"
A few oppose it because it will add another half a dozen to a dozen
characters to already growing subject lines, and people might eventually
have to start trimming some of the RE: Re: RE: from the subject line.
I would find it convenient to have a visual indication "[CC]" of which
messages are from the list[s] V which are similar subject lines from other
sources. But, I can live with it either way, so it becomes an issue to be
decided by who feels strongest about their needs.
