You are correct. Evan explained this in his post: https://dashtalk.org/threads/v12-testing-thread.5484/page-23#post-57691As far as I understand it was a security concern. Making it OK for the payments to go to a different address could open unexpected attack vectors, that is what I gathered but I am sure eduffield can clarify.
(How could i forget that .. too much testing caused memory loss i guess.. lol..)
nmarley - I guess we're not going to see that feature again. Sorry.
