 Especially on -www I picked up the habit to Cc people because often
enough people aren't subscribed (users usually, though) - sorry. :)

 I mean that everyone could mail as foo@example.com - and if one is out
to abuse the system they definitely would choose to use foo@example.com
as sender address and not bar@domain.com. Sending the confirmation
question to a different address of course might be considered useless,
though even then it would depend on case-by-case and there might be
valid reasons to do so.

 Hope this was more clear what I mean.
