I have though about this.
As the client should not rely on this, it is only to satisfy the email 
requirement, I think it must be there and a legal email address.
My suggestion is: To recommend using the email address of the 
account that write the object.

As I expect this to  uncontroversial, only being a clarification
and an additional recommendation,
I will modify the format document accordingly, if there
there are no objections until:

TUESDAY 21th of March 14:00 (Berlin Time).
