That takes care of only "authorized addresses" sending the list.  Without
help from your mail system, it doesn't do much for preventing the forging of

You don't actually have to solve that problem until it happens (unless you
fear the first instance will create a "hostile workplace" situation)...then
require moderation until you come up with a better solution.
