FWIW, I don't really care.  My mailer will delete duplicates, and
downloading one more copy of the message is no big deal as long as
it's not huge.  In fact, I like being Cc:ed when my attention is asked
for (e.g., when I took part in a discussion) because my mailer is
configured to highlight messages that have my e-mail address in To: or
Cc:.

As for Reply-To:, I've configured this group in Gnus with
(broken-reply-to . t), such that reply goes to the author, and
follow-up goes to everybody, as intended.
