To clarify one thing. Only BZ is concerned from the forwarding adress. 
The Forum And the Wiki has separate login systems. Yes, maybe it's 
possible that people use the OOo forwarding Adress for the wiki and the 
forum. But you are never forced to use it. But the BZ (and befor IZ) was 
integrated in the OOo Framework (first Collabnet, and then kenai). The 
big problem is only the BZ. AFAIK we have all accounts for the wiki and 
the Forum.
