One think I think is missing is a way for client to easily report spam
and other abuse.  IODEF being for communication between service
administrators might be a bit heavy if you just want to say "I got spam
from foo1234 at example.com".

With that in place, we'll be able to collect data that would feed into
automated blocking, IODEF reports and reputation.
