Here's a simple mechanism which has not yet been tried
seriously. Email server peering. This means that an SMTP
server operator only accepts incoming mail from operators
with whom they have a bilateral email peering agreement.
I debunked this before. Please see list archives.
Bilateral agreements have been shown to scale quite well
whether you look at BGP peering or the world of business
contracts. In any case, the fundamental need here is that[..]
I suggest you take a better look than your current "Oh this sounds
logical and is probably how it works" skimming of reality, because it
really is quite different - much uglier, mostly - from what you state.
The idle mind is the devil's playground
