Is a Federal Express delivery confirmation sufficient proof of filing?

Downtown San Diego from Coronado
Overnight courier delivery confirmation is proof that the H-1B COE package arrived at the USCIS facility. However, it is not proof that the USCIS accepted the case for processing. Only the H-1B receipt notice provides such proof. Some employers choose to use the overnight delivery confirmation as proof of filing. These employers run the risk that the case may later be rejected for processing (wrong fee, wrong service center, etc.).
