True, but a lot of the spam that I get is tailored anyway, and therefore not

already got a way to do this.

Yes - but if you are saying, so let anyone do it this new way...

The spammer currently consume the CPU cycles to do the
distribution. If this were to go past experimental, each MTA would
assume that load. Many MTAs have configuration parameters that
allow them to limit the number of connections per sender. (Site X can
not send more than Y number of email's per day).

I personally have never had a need to do this kind of thing.
But perhaps there is a reason for this kind of thing.
