I think that's wrong. DKIM and DMARC do not prevent forwarding. What you
mean is SPF. But DMARC is "SPF or DKIM" not "SPF and DKIM". Thus
forwarding is perfectly ok as long as the signed components of the
original mail are not modified.
E.g. JOSM mailinglist could conform to DKIM when neither subject not body
of the mail would be modified. Only appending additional headers (e.g. the
email list headers).
As DMARC has a reporting feature I see that many fordwarders leave the
DKIM signature intact. And I also see a part of the large amount of spam
sent with my domain name and that exceeds the legitimate mail by a factor
SPF is not really that helpful I agree, but DKIM can help when forwarders
do not modify the core message elements which they shouldn't do anyway.

postfix mailinglist works with DKIM and the only difference is the missing
change to the subject field and no additional malinglist text in the
message body. I think that is acceptable, especially when using a proper
mail programm which shows you the additional mailinglist headers for
subscribe, unsubscribe, ...).
