I think that blocking should occur on spamming, not on open relays. 
UUNET is guilty for allowing spamming, not for open relays.  So, what
we're gonna do ?  We'll block open relays, but we'll still have spammers
due to ISPs like UUNET.  Don't you see that the problem is somewhere
else ?  I used here UUNET just as example, there are many other more
ISPs with such "relaxed" policies.
