I'll add something to the man page.  I've also updated

Actually only WordAroundBrokenAAAA should be put there if the local machine
has a broken nameserver in /etc/resolv.conf.  If the broken nameserver
isn't in resolv.conf, only the MTA should need this option (if it is
communicating with other broken nameservers on the net).

Masquerading shouldn't need to be in submit.mc either -- the MTA should do
any masquerading.  The only catch here is for people who may be using
limited masquerading and not masquerading the fully qualified hostname of
submitted mail.

Yes, I'm working on something.

There is some advice in src/contrib/sendmail/src/SECURITY and
src/contrib/sendmail/cf/README (installed to /usr/shared/sendmail/cf/).
