Yes indeed. This means that in case the link checker use the technique I 
suggested, it will be difficult to tell whether an address was rejected 
because it doesn’t exist or because the link checker is blacklisted. I 
had thought about that issue, but since there seems to be a consensus 
about not checking email addresses, I didn’t spent time trying to solve it.

Well, this thread is about the link checker, not the markup validator. 
And by the way, I didn’t said the link checker should check mailto 
links, I only discussed about a mean for doing it after someone asked 
for that feature.
