... and the problem of the recipients of their mail, and a support issue for the ISP of those recipients.
When an ISP starts dealing with complaints about the quality of their service they will make the obvious operational decision and cease using ADSP to discard email.
They might well continue discarding non-DKIM signed mail from some subset of ADSP publishers.
I think that's a perfectly reasonable operational result, but I don't think it's the one that those signing with ADSP intended.
 silently dropping mail that's wanted by the recipients is about the worst failure of an email provider, and ADSP is likely to be applied mostly to mail that the sender believes is important and wanted by recipients, as if the mail itself didn't have perceived high value then phishes based on it wouldn't be of high value either.
