I agree with Phill here.
There's no telling what receivers will do; but the only thing we know is
that if we don't give them something specific, they're guaranteed to do
what we don't want.
If we give them a solid algorithm and emphasize "okay, this is what we
recommend, if you leave the path all bets are off" then we have at least
a fighting chance.
Then we can define sender profiles for each constituency and tell them
what changes they need to make to remain compliant, and by when.
Dear Receivers: "here is the Caller-ID algorithm for 2822 verification".
Dear Senders: this is what you need to do.
Dear Forwarders: this is what you need to do.
Dear Mailing List providers: this is what you need to do.
