If it isn't in your inbox, don't you then have to make an extra effort
every time a message arrives to go to its now hidden location?

But now you need to waste the screen space for folder navigation - and
you are tied to some particular mail client in some particular location
where you made these tweaks. I read from several different
locations/platforms/clients and although they all see the same imap
folders it would be painful to keep any client-side filtering rules in sync.

Yes, this is another one where I see complaints on the lists that don't
add the reply-to:, either about getting duplicate messages in a
'private' mailbox because people are forced to 'reply-all' just to get a
message back to the list, or because conversations drift off-list
accidentally when someone doesn't reply-all. And I've never seen a
complaint about the lists that force the default back to the list
address. I could see that might be a problem if the list topic were
about personal issues, but for technical lists it makes sense to
encourage public replies.
