separate 'subject' for each of these, than to try to distinguish the
different sources of these problems using different 'detail' codes.

So my thinking when I wrote the draft was the "source" was the
anti-spam system. It seems to follow the spirit of the other subject
codes. Like x.4.z means the source is the "Network". When a sender saw
a x.8.z, he would understand the recipient's anti-spam system was
involved. The detail code would tell him what was actually wrong.

I'm sure there will be other methods for determining spam. I really
don't think we need to break down each of those into separate subject
