How does this sound for a new mail distribution network.
Only a few problem here:
1) Bootstrapping it - as long as you need to accept legacy SMTP because
less than 90% of the mail is being done the new way, you have a hard sell
in getting anybody to go to the effort of buying in.
2) Feel free in working out arrangements with 4,000 other ISPs, or getting
stuck with a provider. You thought it sucked trying to get a route announced
for multihoming, this is going to be a lot worse.
3) Go read up on why ADMD/PRMD sucked in X.400 (hint - see (2)).
