No, but if your car doesn't have seat belts, we don't let you drive
it. Basic SMTP lacks safety features that are needed, ergo,
retrictions were placed on it.
As was mentioned, my point was just that the question posited was
flawed. SMTP isn't restricted for competition and money-making
reasons, but because to not restrict it can have quite undesired
implications. The question was why was one ok, and the other not. The
answer is because of spam.
