IMHO, the ADSP assertion "discardable" where messages are silently
discarded may come to represent a bad practice.

distribution of these domain's submissions, where the list might damage
the Author Domain Signature, better retains email's integrity and
provides a comprehensive solution for the problem this damage might cause.
