At the risk of misunderstanding again...  :)
This information was not included in your original question.

Sounds like you have very specific rules that could all be accomplished
within dovecot by extending its rules to forward|redirect to the specific
allowed recipients, delete, or hold for exception handling by CM; in
which case, we are back to why CM can't guess.  

If the destination address is already available within the held message,
then you could create an "action" to process it; but I'm assuming the
final destination is not within the original message or you'd end up with
a mail loop -- unless external mail hits an externally visible server,
and this process forwards to an internal-only server, or somesuch.
