Yep. Existing email-address setups are grandfathered, but no new ones
can be added via the UI.

It's probably a mix of "let's support the ecosystem by only sending
mail from servers authorized by the domain holder" and "let's sell
more Google for Work email hosting".

If it really was more the former, there would be a "if your SPF
records include:_spf.google.com, you can still do it" option, IMO.
