This is a follow-up to #16470.

Not after support but have a question about this new addition on single-site installs. When I set new client websites up, I change the administrator email address (mine) to a non-administrator user (the client) so I don't want them having to click an email to confirm the email change. To workaround this I access wp_options via phpmyadmin and change the email address in there, but if I refresh the General Settings there is a message stating that there is a pending change TO the email address I have changed from, so I click to cancel (which leaves the new email address set).

Would just like confirmation that this method is OK for my own reasons and that no confirmation emails would be sent by doing this.
