I'm with Chuq on this one and I do the same thing.  I know there are some 
exception-lists floating around still, but I'm not on a *SINGLE* list 
where the MLM doesn't either add a 'Sender:' or a "List-ID:' header, and 
so instead of doing the lame filter-on-to-and-cc, I just filter on the 
mlm-supplied headers.

For example, for this list, my filter sorts on:

Sender: list-managers-owner @
 greatcircle .

Bernie Cosell                     Fantasy Farm Fibers
mailto:bernie @
