part2 of (now) 3: (part1 has already landed)
Digging deeper into this I uncovered another bug.  This fixes it, and that allows my "paste address lists" patch to work as expected, even for existing/saved mailing lists.  From the commit message of this patch:

Bug 1575046 - Allow users to edit existing mailing lists

If a user opened a saved mailing list (from the address book
dialog) and tried to edit or delete one of the addresses,    
then clicked the OK button, the changes were not saved.

Perhaps this was caused by de-XBL changes? The fix was to
not set the 'textbox.value' property (as introduced by    
the fix for bug 37435), since that was preventing that
property from updating to what the user typed in. 

I tested to see if the problem from bug 37435 returned
after this change and was not able to reproduce it. 
All message recipients were sent the message as
expected.
