I think this kind of post should to go to mutt-users first.  My
impression is of a pain point too specific to merit a patch to Mutt.

However, that list constitutes a much broader selection of users who may
have great ideas.  A discussion there may find a solution for you, or
perhaps will illuminate a deficiency in Mutt that needs addressing.

Off the top of my head, I would suggest looking into address groups.
Maybe a group would be easier to use when limiting,
e.g. "~p !%f mylists"
