That's the default and it seemed reasonable to me at the time.
Although the RFC doesn't list 554 as a "usual" response to RCPT, it
does say:

   "SMTP clients SHOULD, when possible, interpret only the first digit
    of the reply and MUST be prepared to deal with unrecognized reply
    codes by interpreting the first digit only."

so I think the distinction between 550 and 554 is mostly of academic
