Well, "apparently" isn't the same "surely" :-) Obviously they looked at
the DATA for their decision, so they likely use more than only one

For the record: It's possible that they simple always reject only after
DATA in order to collect as much information as possible on all messages,
e.g. for statistics. If they rejected SPF Fails before DATA, their spam
stats would get distorted.

due to SPF Fail (be it before or after DATA). There _might_ be other
reasons for the rejection you observed. We could ask them to know it for
