Some sites may use the same infrastructure to host their other web services. That angle may have to be explored further.

5) protect valid email-address confidentiality

See Section 7.6 of RFC 2821 about information disclosure in message

This was not the concern.  An attempt to send to an invalid recipient
is likely to return an error which may indicate their non-existence.

When a message is forwarded, the sender doesn't know the final recipient. I was pointing out at disclosure of information about the final recipient.

A side-effect of using SPF for the first part above is that sender address rewrite generally suggested as a solution for forwarding doesn't fit into TBR.
