So what do you do with mail to the I-D authors addresses?

It seems to me that if you publish an RFC and put your e-mail address
in it, you have to expect a certain amount of mail related to the RFC,
and this forwarding hack doesn't change that.  Sure, there should be
some way to turn it off if an address is causing unusual problems but
I don't see what new issues it'd present.
