I agree (I nearly sent this to you alone!).

Another mailing list I subscribe to recently changed listserver, to one which 
did reflect the server's id rather than the originator.  There were a few 
teething troubles (some "interesting" personal mail broadcast to the list...), 
but it has made life much easier overall:  you can see which mail is which for 
a 
quick skim, and reply easily.

Quoting people is slightly harder: you have to look for their mail-id -- most 
mail systems seem to include the x-mail wrapper in the message, and you can 
ferret around in that and find the originator...  It's a good policy to add a 
brief '.sig' with your personal name and mail-id so it's easier to see.

Either way, it's a fascinating list to read!
