In that case, maybe what would help is a section in opendkim/README with recommended settings for use with Mailman. Would you be willing to write such text, based on what you found to work, for the next release?

The SenderHeaders setting is what the filter uses to determine whether or not a message gets signed. It's therefore not possible to split it as you suggested, because your split presumes that decision has already been made while it's actually the basis for the decision.
