I just spent a few minutes looking at how to edit headers in reply
messages in Thunderbird and I didn't quickly find it. (I do find an
Add-On that allows editing messages in reader, but not the composer.)

IMHO that's the wrong way to thread. I believe threading should be done
by the In-Reply-To: and References: headers.
I consider Subject: based threading to be a hack. But it's a hack that
many people use. I think Thunderbird even uses it by default. (I've
long since disabled it.)

I blame ignorance and the prevalence of tools that encourage such behavior.

Yes I do use DMARC as well as DKIM and SPF (w/ -all). I don't see how
me using that causes problems with "list-reply".
My working understanding is that "list-reply" should reply to the list's
posting address in the List-Post: header.
