Group reply To-vs-Cc recipients

Someone opened a ticket asking about Mutt's group reply behavior.

By default (i.e. ignoring Mail-Followup-To, $reply_self, $reply_to, 
etc.), the To recipients are added to the Cc list of the reply.  The 
ticket reporter thought it made more sense for To recipients to remain 
in the To list of the reply.  Apparently, Thunderbird does this, but not 
sure about other clients.

Have no fear, I have no intention of changing default behavior.  But I'm 
curious about opinions on this list.  Is this "established proper" 
behavior, or is this something reasonable to have an option for?

Thank you!
