    Thank you. ^^;  Well, I thought I have asked a stupid question.  In
fact I have just done this at my mail gateway.  It seems to be working.

    However, this does not work on my real mail servers.  The unknown
local recipients do not even visit filter_recipient().  I do not know if
this is a new situation of Sendmail 8.14.0.  Is this idea working on the
real final mail servers?
