Why would I be relaying mail on?  Only for a mailing list.

The most obvious is mailbox aliasing, such as for vanity addresses such

That's a mailing list with one subscriber.   Same scenario.

Not really. Mailing lists have very different administrative behaviour to
aliases - they change the return path to an administrative address when
forwarding the message whereas aliases do not. RFC 5321 section 3.9.
