I have a full set of RFCs online, and a grep thru them all (*.txt)
showed 3 cases where there exists "owner-" -prefix, and none of "-owner".
RFC 1013 X-window protocol :-)
RFC 1211 Problems with the Maintance of Large Mailing Lists
RFC 1429 Listserv Distribute Protocol
And even the RFC 1211 does not really say 'thy shall do this "owner-"'..
.. hmm.. Look at chapter 3.2, it does imply sendmailism, and doesn't
even say how such setup is configured...

I am a finn, I might decide to do:
and it could be made to work as easily as "-owner" :)
And as the RFC 1211 (and our experiences) state, that isn't the problem.
The problem is more on fully unstandardized formats of error reports..
