I appreciate your confidence in this document, but it's not an RFC yet. I
am reluctant to do as you suggest since it would require making up addresses
to be the targets of the well known addresses, or using real addresses that
would ultimately be bombarded by the newbies you keep talking about. (Not
to mention that Sendmail is not the only mail transport in town and not all
newbies will recognize an aliases file or be able to interpret one.)
You might consider using the domain Example.ORG (sort of the
RFC 1918 of domains) if you decide to build some appendixen.
You might want to note the prior work done by the NJM working group.
