Never means exactly that, never, so your public documentation does need
modification to reflect that your version of never doesn't equal the
dictionaries and most peoples understanding of it.

I can see your point though, however,  and it seems if you apply it to
one, questions remain as to who else you apply it to, it's just as well
all white lists in SA are scored 0 on all mail servers I control so you
don't/wont/can't decide white listing policies here.

(No , im not totally anal, hospitals here all use domain name of
health.$state.gov.au... they bypass SA and MTA tests altogether.)
