Not 'counterintuitively' -- this is a support, advocacy and
sharing list, and off-list replies are usually not the right
choice, particularly with less-skilled users.  This topic is a
TUI/GUI, or vi/emacs, or sendmail/postfix debate, and there is
no 'right' answer.  See:
From: man 1 formail:

       -I headerfield
            Same as -i, except that any  existing  similar  fields  are  simply
            removed.   If  headerfield consists only of a field-name, it effec­
            tively deletes the field.

... Why complain with no reason?  Don't like mangles?  Fix 'em
with procmail. Add to your .procmailrc:

* ^Sender *k12osn-admin redhat\ com
* ^Subject:\/.*
        | formail -I "Subject: [k12]$MATCH"                 \
                -A "X-brand: k12"                           \
                -I Reply-To:

and you'll not have _that_ to carp about any more.
