I think adding one forwarder is sufficiently general.
If we can handle one, we can handle many.

I would change "MDA" to "Receiver1", since MDA means Mail
Distribution Agent. The MDA really should be at the end
of the line.
Correct. However, some MDAs allow scripting and thus let users
conditionally forward messages.
Someone has configured a forwarding mechanism, supplying a
target email address along with any credentials required for
fulfilling that task. "The person concerned", as we may call
the owner of the target mailbox, is not necessarily the same
person as "the perpetrator" who materially carried out the
configuration task. Are such terms needed?
I don't understand these two roles, and how they differ from
the role of Recipient as we have it currently defined.
Perhaps an example would help.
IMHO, the perpetrator should be the target of DSNs, at least
for failure ones. A related consideration is whether the
mailbox concerned is meant to be transparent w.r.t. senders
or if its address should be concealed. In the latter case,
positive DSNs, if required, should be sent before forwarding.
