My overall point, in so many words, was that mandating an MX record requirement is meaningless IF the GOAL of the mandate is to thwart bad guys.

Who cares about bad guys? Really?

Good point.

If you ask with the mindset of everyone playing by the same (protocol) rules established, I agree.

At the operations side, one might reasonably argue the pendulum has shifted such that a new mandate would have a high payoff. After all, the theory is, the impact would be small against the good guy but if you are legitimate, you would have an avenue of complaining and resolution - you hope. Bad guys don't complaint - they evolve.
