Mail-Followup-To is a mail feature only.  

Mail-Copies-To was intended for mail and news, but only gained
popularity for news.  Given the existence of MFT I don't think it is
important to support.

Eh, I don't know what you mean by the "default reply-to".  If it is
what is presented to the user by default in the "To" and "CC" fields
when composing a reply, I think MFT and MCT should change the "default

Basically, both headers only affect the behaviour of the "wide reply"
command.  If you make a wide reply to a message where Mail-Followup-To
is set, the "To" field will be set to the specified adress, and "CC"
will be empty.  If you make a wide reply to a message where
Mail-Copies-To is set, that adress will be added to the default CC,
along with any other adresses that would usually be there.  Unless the
value is never/nobody, in which case the poster will be removed from
the default CC field.

Gnus will give a warning in that case.
