But 3461 (bottom two paragraphs of page 13) says any message can have <> as sender when it reaches the recipient.

Null return paths have never been particularly consistent or clearly scoped :-) But still, RFC 3461 doesn't say that arbitrary programs can send email from <> because they think it would be neat.

As I read it, it says that arbitrary SMTP clients may send email from <> because the sender of the message doesn't want to be told about the fate of the message. IMO that's much the same thing.
