Agreed, though, a reply-all duplicates mails in some clients. So we are on one level talking about UI deficiencies but what is left is accidental group messages... Happened to me and I am using email since centuries.
That is clearly a broken functionality in the mail application
you are using and not in the list server.
No need to break it for everyone else.

In my opinion it breaks replying to lists. If one wants to send private,
offlist messages this is separate from the list.
