You think it is argumentative that, for example, a protocol element that
directs a recipient to Reject mail will typically be adhered to and that
conforming to SSP but not adhering to that explicit request is unlikely?
This sort of heuristic approach to protocol specification and interpretation
usually has a poor outcome in Internet-scale services.
ps. Another question that has solidly emerged is whether you can discuss this
topic without ad hominems.
