OK, with David's kind offer, this makes sense, with the proviso that
it's being provided on a grace-and-favour basis, rather than a guarantee
of perpetual email forwarding.

When/if David is no longer able or willing to provide the service, we're
not going to spend time/effort/money looking for another provider to
support the legacy service.

I would also suggest that the default for web forwarding should be the
member's account. That way, people who move over to the new
service will do so seamlessly, without having to do anything.
