Generally speaking, meaningful tags in Subject fields (specifically any
which may need to be globally recognized by MUAs) are a Bad Thing. The
problem is that people regularly invent new conventions for same,

is that anything like defining a new convention for group syntax?
I have already accepted that a new convention for group syntax was not a
pretty solution to that particular problem, and repeatedly asked for
suggested alternatives. It still remains the only solution on the table
for picking the list addresses out of a message sent using a Reply-to-All
feature, or for detecting cross-posts to multiple lists in the absence of
any indication added by the sender.
