Yes. Actually, in a patch I worked out over the weekend (and one of
many I hope to check in in the morning), I log and drop any recoginzed
bounce that yielded a non-member address. That seems like the most
reasonable behavior. The current forwarding was mostly for debugging
purposes, but I think it's just more annoying than useful.
