I agree with the "invisible" argument. What if the rule would be applied to the UI itself as well?

I.e. if you type a number or select a contact, switch the combobox to the account that matches the rule. Also add a checkbox that says something like "auto-select account by rule" ...

The user cannot determine what account is being used unless he consults the SIP traces or he memorizes all the rules and keeps them in his head all the time. Even then he can only guess what account is being used. And if you make an error when you add a rule, you will never notice it until you inspect the SIP traces.
