ISTM that MH's authors took a wrong turn, given their implementation of
bcc and their reluctance to add dcc.  This pushed them towards removing
the recipients from a group address.  Having a "normal" bcc, or dcc
early on, would have given that second place to put the recipients when
an empty group is wanted for privacy.

Cheers, Ralph.
