Actually emails have quite a lot of other stuff in the header than  
the in-reply-to header. If you use Apple's Mail.app, you can go to  
"View -> Message -> Long Headers" or shift-command-B to view all the  
headers, and you'll see that there's maybe about 20 of them or so.  
Imagine if any message you viewed was prepended within all this  
sometimes useless information. So by default it is hidden, but you  
can ask to see it all if you like.

By the way, if you right-click on the list's mailing address on the  
To field, you can select the "New message" option to somewhat quickly  
start a new message to the list.
