Yes, the policy is not to munge it. If you Google on "Reply-to
Munging Considered Harmful" you'll see why. There are also documents
explaining the opposite point of view. This list did not have perfect
agreement on the question, but the informal consensus was that more
people thought munging bad than good.

Huh? Our list server is supposed to not touch Reply-to. If mine is
getting munged, how do you know that I set it? :-) Are you sure you
saw what you saw?

As for duplicates, your mail client might have an option to fold them
into one.
