Unfortunately for all concerned, it's going to be *perceived* as a security
solution, and people will invent a threat model to match.  Anybody who thinks
otherwise is invited to compare what people *think* the meaning of the little
padlock their browser displays versus what the padlock *actually* means, or the
difference between what people *think* SPF does for their email versus what it
*actually* does.
