You still haven't explained this:  What's in it for the sender?
Why would an e-mail sender be interested in deferring the receiving SMTP
server's obligation to deliver?  As an e-mail sender, I want the e-mail

And since ultimately the sender chooses whether or not to use TBR, you
have to explain...
