Fair enough.

I hope you realize I was just kidding around.  I'm (mostly) fine with
people cc'ing themselves on email, but I personally think Fcc: is a
lot more efficient (also, I have never in my life needed to refer to a
message-id header from one of my outgoing messages, so that's probably
another reason I'm fine with it).  I also never just send email to myself,
but I could (maybe) see why you'd want to do it.

The more I think about it ... hm, I could see some pitfalls here.  The
out of the box configuration includes Fcc: +outbox.  That means if we
allowed a blank To: and cc: header, it would be easy for a user to think
email was sent, but it wouldn't actually go anywhere.  So I think we'd
have to think more about that.
