I'm just coming in from left field (without having kept up with the content or 
intent of the discussion), but:

I'm guessing that the behavior you describe can be mimic'ed in kmail by 
pressing T on a(n open) received email, changing the address, and then 
pressing send.

I guess what I haven't paid attention to is whether that is a useful behavior.

(Of course, I assume things like the time sent are changed in the headers, and 
presumably all the Received: headers (at the new recipient).)
