The problem is, as you've noted, that there is no easy way for a plain-text
message recipient to "go private" with the originator of any given message, at
least in the e-mail interface. 
Hold on, this is getting confusing (I read digest..).
Unless your group allows anonymous posts, I don't see the problem. On properly configurated listserves, my email-program will show who the sender was, and give me the choice to reply to the group or to the sender. If on digest, I will just have to copy-and-paste the private email-address and edit out the irrelevant pieces of quote.
Only on yahoogroups (and this is a rather recent thing) I have to scroll all the way to the bottom of the individual message to see who the sender was (which is annoying, especially if (s)he doesn't trim).

            If you read what others have said, you'll get why the need is there.   It is a grand PITA, particularly if you can't see, to attempt to extract the originating member's e-mail address from the headers on the message.

            I can do that with ease, but others can't.
