typical 'forwarding' through university-based addresses is of the 
'alias' variety:

    http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5598#section-5.1

This does not change any of the data that is 'signed' by DKIM.  Hence a 
DKIM signature should survive the forwarding.

DKIM signature breaks when a covered header field or body are modified 
and otherwise survives.
