If a user has already seen the message, there is no "bounce" (a bounce
would be a transport-related notification).  A user *might* elect to
compose an entirely new message (e.g. to an abuse contact), but that
situation (new messages) is already covered in the architecture draft.

I think it is not a good idea to have users compose any message in response to a spam. Much better if they can just hit a "Reject as Spam" button, and know that the "Spam Bounce" will be handled promptly and correctly. Do we agree that Spam Bounces should not go to the Return-Path? Do we agree that reputable forwarders should want to receive these bounces?
