Generally, yes. I actually manage spam control for multiple systems that 
operate under a diversity of policy regimes, some of which require 
tag-and-release and/or quarantine for some mail that is in fact nearly 
pure spam. On my personal domain (>20yo, including still-live addresses 
used for about a decade unmunged on Usenet) I reject >95% of all 
attempted SMTP transactions before DATA (a majority doomed before MAIL) 
so my "filter_end" function in MD (where SA gets a look) sees a mostly 
de-spammed stream of messages.
