I do the same for users who are repeat posters, but where it is clear
they would not be subscribers  For example , the reminders we get to
prepare the quarterly Board Reports.

I assume something similar would have been done for Confluence wiki
notification, SVN commit logs and BZ notifications.  So maybe those
headers can be checked to give some indication that they are from
non-list subscribers?
