I think I've seen some mailing lists rewrite every message as being "from" some email address under the list's control, which I'm guessing would fix the DMARC issue. Are there significant disadvantages to that? I guess it makes it tricky to figure out how to reply in private; is there some way to work around that via a reply-to address that wouldn't also make it tricky to reply to the list?
