There is such a header:
List-Post: <mailto:gnupg-users at gnupg.org>

Reply-to is intended to be used by the sender to state his preference 
for replies. If he prefers off-list replies then he should set it to his 
address and if he prefers on-list replies then he should set it to the 
mailing list address. (In fact, there's also the Mail-followup-to header 
which is even better suited for this than the Reply-to header.)

IMNSHO, it's not up to the mailing list admins to dictate where replies 
to my posts should go. Therefore, the mailing list software should not 
touch the Reply-to header.

Exactly. It works correctly because those MUAs use the above mentioned 
standardized (RFC 2369) List-Post header.
