You are confusing delivery notices with post-delivery notices.

In some environments, it is deemed more important for an original author to know that there message did not get fully delivered, than to notify the list admin of the problem.

It of course makes sense that the original author be notified if the message
never made it as far as the list.  If, however, it is deemed important that
the author be notified of failure to be delivered to *the end user*, the proper
tool in this case is:

3798 Message Disposition Notification. T. Hansen, Ed., G. Vaudreuil,
     Ed.. May 2004. (Format: TXT=64049 bytes) (Obsoletes RFC2298) (Updates
     RFC3461, RFC2046) (Status: DRAFT STANDARD)
