no. you shouldn't be expected to hide useful information for the recipient just so that the mail system will be transparent.

Agreed. But IMO, the list processor software is a recipient as far as the internet mail system is concerned. (You get a final delivery DSN when the message is delivered to the mailing list processor.)

okay, I'll grant that. but if the list processor is going to alter the message, it needs to consider the effect this has on digital signatures.

For a valid message I certainly agree. But I think the case is far weaker for a syntactically invalid message.

If it works, fine. If not, that's a pity. Maybe add another test case if the problem seems worth a workaround.
