 Well, I can start complaining about the extra copies whenever I get one if 
that helps anything :).

 There exists http://cr.yp.to/proto/replyto.html , which should help with 
this. There's of course the usual problem of some mail clients not bothering 
to support useful functionality, but if the reply-to-munging-harmful crowd 
can waive that argument off, I don't see why the same couldn't be done here. 

 Besides, there's the much simpler way of getting the copy by making a filter 
rule on "In-Reply-To:.*<email>*".

 Another reason is that this gives everybody a choice whether they want the 
extra copy or not, whereas reply-to-all forces everybody to get the duplicate 
(and the filter-it-out suggestion is ridiculous, what if somebody really 
explicitly also CC-ed me e.g. because it's urgent?).
