No, it would omit them. Thus for open mailing lists no reply-to header
should be used. At least some ML software can be configured to remove
duplicates (i.e. don't send message to recipients in CC). Of course the
MUA's "reply all" functionality should be used when working with open MLs.
Some MUAs (e.g. mutt) have a "list reply" functionality that can be used
to send to the ML only.
