Then you are not subscribed the right mailing lists. ;-)

Seriously, this discussion is almost as old as mailing lists. Rewriting
the subject adds clutter, messes with some MUAs, wastes screen estate on
devices with small screens (e.g. smartphones), and breaks DKIM.

Filtering by the existing "List-Id" header works just fine. Also, you
can use address extensions with your Google Mail (and many others),
meaning that you can have your mailing list messages automatically
filtered/labelled properly. Look at my address in this message, it
uses "+nginx" as an extension.
