 Not actually a bug; this was intended.

 I think my idea was that if you passed a user ID to any of the email
 fields, then you'd know the ID would definitely exist, but if you passed
 an email, you did not know if it belonged to a user on the site. This is
 why, where possible, we pass a user ID when we send email.

 However, presumably you've found it more convenient to pass an email
 address in some case, so I have no problems with support being added.

 It'd be best to implement this in `class
 BP_Email_Recipient->__construct()` -- which will require substantial
 refactoring, and new tests for the support you're adding -- instead of

 I think you'll be able to use the `class BP_Email_Recipient->get_user()`
 method to help. If you're setting the user name and user email from a real
 user, please also set the user object property.
