Only if you're not redirecting based on the results of MIMEDefang
processing. I have a system set up for domain hosting that redirects
anything tagged as spam into a separate "spam at domain" account. I can't
do this at delivery, because I'm not using procmail or some other
similarly configurable delivery agent. I can't just insert an alias or
virtuser entry, because not all email should be diverted.
And I *really* don't feel like creating custom sendmail delivery
rulesets (not even sure if that would work...) when MIMEDefang can do
the job in (relatively) clear and straightforward Perl.

That's why you document what you've done. <g>
Get your mouse off of there! You don't know where that email has been!
