That seems pretty orthogonal to the discussion so far. Declaring discussion of From off limits because it is also displayed makes me wonder why you thought it was alright for the IETF to take on the work codified in RFC 822 and its descendants?
Just because it's displayed doesn't mean any change is driven by UX considerations. I get that you're intent on avoiding anything that might make ADSP deployment less difficult, but please stick to the arguments that make some sense.
