I see your point and I can't disagree with it, but my feeling is that
ship sailed approximately 30 years ago; IMHO changing the behavior now
gets us very little and breaks things for existing users.  I'm also
in the camp that think's MH's bcc behavior is confusing, and don't
understand John Romine's dislike of dcc.  At least now those things
are better documented.
