So I'd have to say, not ever gonna happen.
Let's assume that 1,000 proof sets are shipped to NGC in 1,000 separate orders on the same date. NGC receives all 1,000 orders on the same date. How would NGC be able to identify which set belonged to which submitter? Let's take it a step further and assume that 500 sets ended up being graded PF70UCAM and the other 500 sets received PF69UCAM. I could imagine having 500 submitters claiming that they were shipped the wrong set.
I really don't see how it could work!
You order a set from the mint, have it shipped in your name to the grader's address instead of your address.
This could only work IF the submitter were a PCGS Authorized Dealer AND that dealer made prearrangements with PCGS to keep an eye out for the package.
I just do not see this happening since there are sooooo many variables which are not addressed when the package is received and opened.
Yeah, that's a great idea!
Slick Steve who has an account with NGC places an order with the Mint using the credit card of Dumb Dennis who is registered with the Mint. How is Empty-headed Ernie who works for the Mint supposed to know if the address is legit or not? So, when Slick Steve's order is received and processed by NGC, he uses his own credit card for payment to avoid raising any red flags.
This is just one scenario where the Mint and some other account holder can be duped. Is it really worth it for the Mint to use this "direct ship" process?
Dumb Dora was so dumb.
How dumb was she?
Dora was so dumb that she once ordered a BLANK from the U.S. Mint.
I apply for a engineering license with the state and they request that my school transcript be directly sent to them. They are expecting it and NCEES sends it at my request. I pay the state and NCEES. It's a mutually agreed upon relationship. Not too difficult.
But, let's suppose that Nefarious Nick requests the transcripts and arranges it with NCEES under the guise of being Bungling Billy?
You have to remember that there are thousands and thousands of people who would prefer to spend all day, 24/7, thinking of ways to make money and avoid legitimate work.
Dumb Dora was sooooooo dumb that when she got a blank planchet in her proof set from the mint she returned it asking for a replacement.

You seem to forget that Slick Steve is soooooo slick that........
How slick is he!
He was able to get Bungling Billy's credit card info and use it with his own name.
Limited Edition Coins! General Coinage! How many different scenarios do you think that Mint employee Empty-headed Ernie is capable of remembering?
Emphasis on simple.
I would agree with you on most government policy. But filing my income tax is a two fold problem as apposed to forwarding a request. What could be simpler? Maybe I mis-understood your reply?
