If you have an account object...

And that account object knows all your email addresses, by whatever
means, LDAP, policy, regexes, big long table, private phone line to
GHod, whatever...

And lists via rosters check that account object for a given email

Then the Account object should be able to return a True/False or
whatever other result is needed as applicable.  

More specifically this doesn't seem a particularly intereting corner.
It mostly seems a question of building in the appropriate delegation

Does the above seem a reasonable approach?  Of course it presumes that
the account class supports mix-ins/plug-ins.
