  You have to make sure that they email is legit before sending stuff
to it. So, it would be best if they logged in - i.e. created an account
confirmed by email address, and then could start requesting eRFCs.

  Otherwise, the server becomes a way to get the RFC editor to spam
people :-(

  Fortunately, almost all CMS's/phpSlash/back-end, etc. have this
facility pretty much built in.
