I'm not sure what's the best place to send this idea to enhance SMTP for
avoiding spam. The ASRG list is no longer active,

It's still around but I moved it when the ASRG research group shut down.
Send "subscribe" to asrg-request(_at_)lists(_dot_)gurus(_dot_)org

Please let me know in case this is actually an old idea and has been
discussed/rejected already.

These are all well known ideas, some of which are very, very old.  For
example, notify and poll was proposed by Dan Bernstein in the 1990s.

Some of the ideas turn out to be bad, others are OK but not worth the
enormous switching costs from the way mail works now.  A few including
notify and poll have patent license issues in the U.S.
