In the same say this email is anonymous. Sure, I say it is from MarkM, but
my browser doesn't add any identifying info that you can see. Even if I
included MarkM's PGP signature, by your criteria, it would still be
anonymous.

"XML" is also a misnomer. And "Http" is confusing as well, since these
requests can (and should) generally be carried over https. At least we agree
on "Request" ;).
