I'm against it.  I see no advantages over "Sender" header. I'm
subscribed here for since Sep 2002 and didn't have any problem using
"Sender" header. As pointed earlier, it can cause problems with subject
lines with RE, FWD etc.

It's strange. My feeling is just the opposite. I'm subscribed to many
other eg. gtk,samba-technical,xfs lists and most of them adds nothing to
subject line (7/9).
