By default both, email/api and web interface, should behave the
same, otherwise it would be too magical.

In some use cases (the user SHOULD do something) this might be
valid, in others (the user MUST do something) not.

If the author of an auditor script wants to relax the checks for
e.g. email, they could use db.tx_Source to make the script behave
differently, see "Restricting updates that arrive by email" in
customizing.txt for the opposite use case.

P.S.: It is auditor vs. reactor, both are detectors :)
