I could reply to your reply in detail but that would only distract from the important points in this debate.

the points are these:

if widely adopted CBV will impair the reliability of the mail system by causing delivery failures for legitimate messages in cases where delivery would otherwise have been successful (i.e. if the return-path field was invalid or not usable due to a configuration error or temporary failure)

since CBV is easily circumvented by spammers, in the long term CBV does no good - it only introduces overhead.
