If your local server does not correct the 'from' to reference a JID
controlled by your local server, the message will never make it to
another server via s2s - it will be bounced because your server is not
authorized to send from a different host.
In the realm of your own server, you can do whatever you like - it is
your user's decision whether or not they trust you to run a server.
