Is there really any point in the above messages?

If only email addresses are used, the nominee (as above), and the 
nominator, can both be completely obscured, making the message only as 
informative as saying "For your information, someone has been nominated. 
We are not going to tell you who has been nominated, only that someone 
has been nominated.".
