As other point out, DMARC is about address spoofing, and solves it in
a way which makes several common uses of email beyond simple 1:1
messaging break entirely, for example this very mailing list (or that
of the IETF). I for one am very glad, at times like this, that we
don't have cabals of large operators who similarly decide to bypass
the standards organizations and solve their own niche problems without
consulting the community.
