I don't believe it does conflict at all, as what it is explaining is
that in the first minimum option (Bcc: but no To: field) the Bcc: header
is allowed to be blank, whilst in the second minimum option (To: but no
Bcc: field) the To: header must have one address minimum.
So to reach the minimum headers you must have a Date:, From: and *either*
a (possibly blank) Bcc: *or* a To: field with an address in it (which of
course doesn't have to be the envelope recipient).
