This is e-mail, not some web stuff.
The contact information for various purposes are defined in the
RFCs (e.g., postmaster for e-mail).

The reason is for all the people who are NOT engineers, have an easy way to contact someone for ANY issues related to that domain.

As well, with everyone hiding 'whois', and so many companies that don't have a proper postmaster, or even check the postmaster mailbox, it does make sense, which is why it was recommended as a best practice.

There are more than just engineers out there that want to find out who is behind the 'mask'..

But yes, maybe it doesn't strictly belong in SMTP language, but a 'suggestion' might be in order..
