 Those aren't queueing states though; they're metadata about the message.

 I think I don't understand what this means.

 The example given was "spam", which strikes me as a label attached to a
 message somehow (perhaps as metadata) and not a phase of message handling
 enroute to its destination.

This suggests a confusion about the clause. Does it provide a label to explain
the specific Received field or does it label the message?  I think that having
it used as a label for the message is just plain wrong. Put those somewhere else.

That depends on the meaning of the SPAM state. If it means checking if the message IS spam that is different from it meaning that the message has been identified AS spam. You are treating as the latter when the intent might be the former (ie: The check might introduce a delay in processing the message so you are marking it to show the reason for the delay).
