There are 12,434 employees worldwide at my company that are either
sales people or handle some sort of customer service where email is
'directed' to them.
I hope that you are not suggesting that DKIM is pointless unless you
already know the person that is sending to you.
Although... now that I think about it- I agree with you!
In my opinion, I am agreeing with you due to the lack of specific
rules covering who can and cannot sign for me and when/how do I expect
my policy to be enforced.
