Well, just assumed that thunderbird would be able to make use of that,
you would need a List-Reply: header field added from the mailing list

But that's considered harmful as well.

So there is no solution which satisfies the lazy ones as well as the
paranoid ones. No, I will neither say to which group I belong nor where
you belong to. *g*

Choose your poison....

My opinion is:
If reply-to and list-reply is considered harmful, that it should be a
client side option if the client should obey it or not.
That's the only way to satisfy everyone.

The same this has been made with read confirmation requests in email
headers. So why not with any other header which could be harmful?
