Inconsistency?

Is there any reason why the transport_table wants

domain <nexthop>

while sender_dependent_relayhost_maps wants

@domain <nexthop>

Actully, it wants:

domain transport[:nexthop]

Yes, the lookup key in transport was historically domain only, and also
supports parent-domain lookups via .parent, while the address mapping
tables just support user@domain, @domain. So as not to confuse bare
users (for domains in $mydestination) with bare domains.

The transport never user bare user names.
