I think the simplest thing to do would be to write a custom postproc
and use it to interrogate the draft (using scan(1)) to make sure it was
the way you want.  Like if the To: line was blank, exit with a sensible
error message.  If you were happy with it, call the real post.

I've attached the sample postproc I put in the nmh contrib directory;
it's job is to change the switches to post depending on the from line,
but you could use it to see if there's something in the To: header.
