Does it really?  You might avoid some bandwidth/space in not having
individual headers for each message, but you lose all sorts of things
that you can do with messages (delete/ignore threads, watch threads,
keep some messages, reply properly, etc.).

That only relates your reply to the digest, not the original messages.
Threading is done via header information.

You need a digest that has the entire message (headers, too), which
negates the idea of cutting e-mail volume, and a client that could break
them apart (again, negating the your reason for using a digest).

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
