(If this was covered previously, forgive me, but I didn't notice it.)

I like the above, but what about the following?  An implementation would
be assumed to know that my address is <jbeck(_at_)eng(_dot_)sun(_dot_)com>, but 
I'd like a
response to go out for mail to <jbeck(_at_)[*(_dot_)]eng(_dot_)sun(_dot_)com>.  
Is this covered
by the "Implementations are assumed" clause?  The Unix vacation program
only looks at the local part, and I think it would be a Good Idea to make
it easy for people to specify the same behavior (if not the default).
