Well, it does change or say clarify it:

5.2.16  RFC-822  Local-part: RFC-822 Section 6.2
A host that is forwarding the message but is not the
destination host implied by the right-hand side "domain" MUST
NOT interpret or modify the "local-part" of the address.

That means if i send a message out of my domain, zmailer must not
check the local-part !
