Your friends can have their own policies (how could you enforce what someone 
else is allowed to do?).  About exchanging HELOs, well, you can obviously not 
prevent them from doing anything, but the option


already exists.  Ok, we might want to have something more fine-grained (to 
specify which HELOs are ok to be forwarded), but either way you'll always 
have to trust your "friends" here.
