Discussion about raw DKIM signing sometimes seems to have the underlying view
that the From field is validated as being accurate. At the least, this seems
to vary among different folk. I wanted to see whether there is a clear view
one way or the other.
I'm not suggesting "fixing" DKIM. I'm seeking clarity among the community.
