Yahoo and Hotmail seem to be good candidates to want this. I'm open to
hearing otherwise from them. I think a lack of response on this list
is not equivalent to a negative response, though.
My underlying point is that I need to understand more about how
phishers, once locked out of use of bigbank.com due to DKIM+ADSP, can
best be persuaded to avoid use of account.info.bigbank.com, or any
other subdomain that they've thought of, that I haven't.
Has nothing to do with anyone's legal department. I'd recommend we
pretend that was never raised as a point.
