You said it yourself: because it would break existing standards. That's
reason enough not to mess with things. The design dates back to a time
when it was important to simplify mail actually being delivered, which
it does. Hence, it is not flawed, it is just a case of not anticipating
that one day people might abuse the mechanics. Even today, I believe it
is more important to have e-mail and mailing lists actually work than to
prevent abuse.

If you happen to come up with a magic pill, feel free to crate RFCs that
one day might supersede SMTP et al.
