Those options don't need to be mutually-exclusive. Once it's used by
most subscribers you could decrease spam threshold of your filters for
unsigned int^Wmail. AFAIK, the list maintainers check the filtered mail
at least occasionally anyway so it wouldn't cause (significant) mail
lossage. However, it wasn't me who suggested this as a spam filter and the
spammers would surely catch up after awhile considering the huge zombie
farms they own, it would probably not cause a performance problem except
a little more initial work.
I was rather thinking about the comfort of using a meta ID instead of
a plain (fixed) mail address which is also nice for people who use
generated addresses which have a small time window of validity.
