With respect, I would argue that this isn't as hard and fast a rule as
you make it sound.  Replying to a digest can be done, especially when
using the MIME style digests.  This is the list default for new
subscribers, and highly recommended for anyone using the digest.  This
method sends each digest as a MIME message with individual list
messages as RFC822 parts.

Apart from that little nit-pick, I agree with the rest of your
message. :)
