A claim made in the charter of detecting spoofing depends upon a
comparison of the signing-domain with the email-address domain.
There is no such absolute claim that I can see in the draft
charter . The claim there is that dkim can "assist ... in
detecting ... certain forms of spoofing" which is quite
different from saying something like "all receivers should
discard all mail which isn't signed by the From domain" which
is what you appear to complaining about.
It really seems to me like you're chasing a shadow.
suggests the email-addresses has been constrained to the transport when
DKIM is advertised as a MTA to MTA mechanism.
There are many (possibly:-) logical leaps there. Too many IMO.
PS: Thanks for the short response!
