Presumably though if you send a message, and shortly afterwards the same message comes back to you with a note saying that it couldn't be delivered to the address you specified, it's not too hard to differentiate that from fake bounces to messages you clearly never sent.
Anyway in practice people obviously do notice bounces, as they generally manage to do just fine in cases where they've typed the address in wrong, for example.
