I disagree strongly (assuming we remove the noise word "randomly")
Attempting to deliver to nonexistent recipients is by far the most

ultimate destination is a simple and cheap way to avoid this.
Your point about post-DATA rejection is valid, but this makes up a very
small percentage of backscatter.
