Part of the problem is that "softfail" and "hardfail" don't make
much intuitive sense.
For SPF (and Sender ID) a SOFTFAIL is what SSP has as t-flag, and
an Authentication-Results: hardfail is just a FAIL (for SPF etc.).
For receivers accepting "hardfail", not exactly the ideal course,
but receivers are free to shoot into their own foot. Aim higher.
Well, FWIW, I don't think that t=testing is at all helpful either. What,
for example, does p=strict, t=testing mean? It seems like a silly-state
to me and ripe for confusion. It's that sort of subjective state that we
should both learn from SPF and avoid.
