Um, I MEANT to say...
Ah yes, a very good analogy. It took me a while to work out why it
wasn't quite the same thing...
For the mail re-direction, you have to supply identification which
shows that the new address is still "yours". So really you're just
providing a mechanism for ensuring that Alice's letter still reaches
Bob when Bob moves, and his original physical location is now
occupied by Eve.
*sigh* More speed, less haste...
