Thanks for keeping an eye on us! ;)

I'm not sure I'm following you here. Isn't the target list enough to 
identify the general context of the email? I don't think I've ever seen 
a group at W3C prefixing all emails with the name of the mailing-list 
itself. Quickly looking at the archives of the Protocols and Formats 
Working Group [1] for instance, I don't see any prefix being used there 

Groups such as the WebApps WG typically adopt such conventions to 
identify the spec an email is about when they manage multiple specs, but 
the Second Screen Presentation Working Group has only one spec on its 
plate for the time being.
