The envelope-sender can also be spoofed trivially.

If you want to prevent someone from sending email as someone who *is*
approved to post to the list, I think your safest bet is to require
approval for all posts to the list -- in other words, set the action for
posts by moderated members allowed to post to 'hold', and have the
moderate bit set even for users who are allowed to post.
