Is the content of the Sender header commonly used
by the end-user, or even visible to them?

If not, how is it directly relevant to "phishing and forgery

(I'm not arguing that having a Sender header that points
at the sender is anything other than a good thing, or even
that having some Sender-specific foo in some hypothetical
SSP spec would be a bad thing, just the line of reasoning.
I think you're skipping over some details that are important
to bring up explicitly.).
