Should the processing model permit encrypted actors?  Or perhaps more
precisely, is an encrypted actor still an actor as far as the processing
model is concerned?

If it's encrypted, a processor won't know it may have been targetted,
and therefore it might do something bad like forward the header when
it wasn't supposed to.
