I think the options being discussed are:
a) Accept the whole message and then take DKIM validation and filtering action after returning 250 to DATA; or
b) Return a 5xx to DATA after doing DKIM validation when being strict about DKIM or ADSP.
I don't think anyone is suggesting to break the SMTP sequence.

Both implementations exist. In fact, OpenDKIM can be set to operate in either mode listed above.
