Well, one reason I can think of is that many hosts aren't configured to
send mail as a domain address. For example, you may have the foo.com
domain, with a.foo.com, b.foo.com, c.foo.com, and so on. Mail from the
user could come from any of them.
There are ways of coding around them, but preventing subscribers from
posting is a tad anti-social without cause.
