Clearly I am outvoted an having the list put it's own address in the "To:" field

Are you? Perhaps too few people were voting to draw any conclusions.

Hello? This is the TIFF mailing list. I don't think there are a lot of people here that can't even use a mail program, nor that there is much need to send very personal email.

As stronger point, IMHO, is that having the list put its own address in the 'to' field increases the likelyhood that interesting and usefull answers get shared, and that is what a mailing list is all about.
