I'm minutely familiar with the uses of that header. What I'm afraid I
don't understand is the point of your post -- especially in the context

Sadly outdated, and thus unable to properly speak to best practices on
one-to-many media such as mailing lists.
RFC 2822 (standards track) aims to update RFC 822 to current standards,

being, in theory, stuck in IETF's approval process.
