It's possible. I'd really prefer this *not* happen, though.

* If you want to filter by list, use the 'List-Id' field in every 
  message header. Heck, if you want the message treated specially in 
  any way based on which list it came from, use the 'List-Id' field.

* Messages and threads sent to multiple lists with this subject 
  munging quickly accumulate subject-line cruft from all of them.
