Why would any rational reputation system make such an assertion?
It is as stupid as holding domain holders responsible in the
absense of dkim or some other identification mechanism: the
domain holder has no way to prevent it. If this is a threat,
then so is "receivers may trash DKIM-signed messages just because
they feel like it", which is true but useless.
