When setting mailing lists using the New List feature in the Address Book,
there's no way to differentiate which address fields individual addressees
should use, as in the message composition window. The field used for the list as
a whole can be determined when composing a message to a list, using the
drop-down list in the addressing pane, but the behavior with respect to
individual recipients can't be changed.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. in the address book, create and name a new list and give it a name
2. add two or more addresses to the recipient list
3. compose an email, using list name as recipient
4. use drop-down list in addressing pane to determine whether all recipient
addresses go in To:/Cc:/Bcc: fields

Actual Results:  
all list addressees are treated the same way, according to drop-down list in
addressing pane

Expected Results:  
well, this isn't a bug, it's a wish list item. It would be nice to be able to
determine default addressing field in the list's address book entry, so that
some differential treatment of addresses is possible (i.e., some addressees get
To:, some Cc:, and some Bcc:). Any changes in the addressing pane of the
composition window could override the default choices, maybe according to Cc: in
address pane overrides To: in address book, and Bcc: overrides both To: and Cc:.

Anyway, just a dream, that would make this feature a little more useful for some
of the stuff I use lists for.
