	No matter how the authors may "promote" their methods, most
	people don't perceive that there's any great separation between
	anti-spam and anti-forgery techniques.  As far as they're
	concerned, all e-mail threats are basically the same.

	E-mail authentication's promise is that it will improve the
	overall state of the global e-mail infrastructure.  Chopping
	that into smaller bits may be a fun intellectual exercise, but
	it doesn't help explain what's going on to anyone outside of
	our fairly small technology-focused circles.
