How are you able to distinguish between an SMTP client that's implementing connection sharing and one that is not?

Good and fair question which highlights part of the dilemma.

On the other hand, how do you explain Facebook when two clients arriving at the same precise microsecond and each sent 1 message and each waited 5 secs to QUIT. Why didn't it use one session for these two messages? I can only presume it could be a configuration issue or two different clients looked at two different queues in their outbound farm. Who knows?

Or Murray, there is another reasonable explanation for this FaceBook behavior:

      They found it is better not use CS (all or partly) but
      forgot to remove the QUIT delay in cases it does.

In other words, they can send two concurrent messages in 5 secs less total time, then it would take to send two messages under 1 session which would have at least two 5 secs waits.
