I agree, but I think the idea is sound.

For instance, with .forward.

The fact that it can execute a program to list my whereabouts is a 
feature that I may use (and in fact, have used).     The fact that 
the feature is not necessarily known to system admins, and would 
violate *some* policies is not reason to be listed in the CVE.  If we 
start doing that, then we need to document every misunderstanding and 
unclear concept out there -- and Unix or NT alone would generate a 
few thousand!
