The Sender's Declaration of Identity is one piece of that standard.  I 
think of it as a kind of "broadcast license", but without government 
regulation.  You must tell me who you are before I will bother even looking 
up your reputation.  And if you make me do ten failed lookups in less than 
an hour, I'll ignore your IP.

Which "who" is Keith supposed to tell you he is?  The sending system? The MAIL 
the system is sending for? The RFC822 From: field? Note that these are *often*

Some people want to verify the sending system, to make sure it's an authorized
sender of mail.

Some poeple what to verify the MAIL FROM, to make sure that it's coming from the
correct place (this is *different* than the previous).

And so on.
