Also, when sending messages to multiple lists (say F-D and Bugtraq), it
seems you may slightly reduce the multiple message spew that often
results on F-D because of the above by putting all the addresses in the
To: header, rather than one in the To: and the other(s) in CC:.

Why is that, do you think?

Because, from a rather cursory look at several such multiple mails, 
_some_ of those braindead "I'll forward it to every address I can find 
in the message headers even though it did not originate on-site" re-
posters only seem to do this with messages that have CC: headers.
