The closest I've seen to an explanation is:
I don't think there are any particular housekeeping issues from MIMEDefang's
perspective. If an earlier filter rejects the mail, then whether MIMEDefang
gets the data or just gets an xxfi_abort doesn't really matter --- it cleans
up either way.
If you'd rather not waste resources processing a message that has already been
rejected by an earlier milter, then you may be out of luck. I don't know
an easy way to determine that.
