I'm personally in the "Reply-To Munging Considered Harmful" camp

http://www.unicom.com/pw/reply-to-harmful.html
http://woozle.org/~neale/papers/reply-to-still-harmful.html

but I have friends in the other camps too :)

I also really like the proposed "Mail-Followup-To" and "Mail-Reply-To"
headers

Maybe there is a solution to the DMARC thing that could use something like
that so that MUAs that already support it would still work?
