Well yes, it could be done with certificates, but it can also be done
via some type of "root server" system like DNS uses. A database
distributed among many root servers from the registrars is proven.
Sure. Only accept e-mail from white-listed servers. You don't
need a complex system to manage that.
Tracking valid servers seems much easier to track rather than
blacklisting IP's that are not mail servers at all or are abusive
IMHO I don't think it would be that horrible of an idea with
the right amount of notification and education to state something such
as "register your mail servers by this date or risk service
Sure. Are you willing to be the first?
