I suppose there is a third kind - those that can be caught on-the-fly,
while the message is being received, but which due to SMTP limitations
cannot be reported until after the message is received.  Still I have
to wonder how many MTAs are going to get restructured so that all of
the testing for each of the recipients is done concurrently while the
message is being received.  To do this and still minimize the potential
for races strikes me as a coding nightmare unless you seriously
constrain what kinds of criteria can be applied on a per-recipient

Well, MTAs already *do* check message content before answering after  
<CRLF>.<CRLF>. I really don't think the ability to do per-user responses  
will make a significant difference there.
