I guess that it would be better in the "mail from" statement.
You already have som info in the "mail from" statement like size,7-8bit  
etc.. 

Then for each individual rctp to the receiving host could say yes/no
for each of them.

Or the ISP could set up a global noUCE policy if wanted.
I.e ansver no to all rcpt's..
