Greylisting is not a protocol, according to any definition I know.
There is no way to test "interoperability".
Rubbish. I can assure you that if someone implemented greylisting in
such a way that "legitimate" mail stopped being delivered, because they
set the greylist timeout too long or because they used a status code
that everyone choked on or some other such thing that was underspecified
in the RFC, people would say that the implemenation was not
interoperating in the mailing transport/delivery system and that
implementation experience dictated changes to the specification in order
to improve future implementations (assuming that the spec failed to
specify the correct parameters). Greylisting is far more obviously a
protocol with testable interoperability than is, say, RFC 5234 or 5322.
