If we list an IP address, we can say that we've had reports of N spams
and M non-spams from your system.  We can even find out exactly who reported
them and when.  But we can't give you actual mail server logs.

That is beyond the scope of the document.  It specifies only a mechanism
for sending reports about IP events.  It doesn't say anything about how
those reports are to be used.
