Maybe it'd be possible to require mailers to declare that they're
going to transmit UCE in the HELO statement? 
Like "HELO"?  

The servers would have to separate UCE and non-UCE mail into two
batches and send them individually so it's slightly more costly
to propagate the mail that way, of course, but it'd be easy for
the receiving server. Especially if it didn't tolerate UCE at all,
in which case it could just respond 5xx to the HELO statement.
