You haven't read our TODO list have ya? :)  Okay, it's buried in there 
(it's a biiiig todo list!):

*Bounce handling
- Reminders to disabled addresses.  The idea is that if an addr is
  disabled due to bouncing, we should send out periodic reminders.  We
  may want to do this for explicitly disabled addrs too, but perhaps
  with a different schedule.
