Nope.  Mail to the -request mailbox MUST reach some administrative force,
whether a human or software.  The software does NOT have to listen on that
address.  And, in the absence of any clear knowledge about how to reach a
human, the only address to which one can communicate is the -request
address, it is therefore obvious that all mail to that address should
either (a) reach a human or (b) state very clearly and very early on how
to do so.
