You are wrong.

I don't want my bounces to go to the wrong place. I don't have root
at all the places I send mail from, nor do I trust all those who have
root there. So, I don't want my mail bounced to the wrong place.

Uhm, how would you forge your own mail address? It's like forging
your own signature, something which is, by definition not possible:

No, I can't. I don't control the DNS of my University, a few of my
