3. In order for an email message to pass over port 52 it must have a
header which reads:

      X-SPAM-CHARTER: This message conforms to the SPAM Charter

or similar (X-PUCE-CHARTER:). Otherwise, it's just dropped on the
floor. Remember that this is the new port.

4. Abuse of that header is a litigable trademark violation (we get
this set up with lawyers, but akin to DC comics or the Good
Housekeeping Seal.)

You can trademark the use of a TCP port?  Are you sure?

If so, what a keen idea this might be.  Either that, or its really
scary.  I'm not sure which.
