There's quite a bit of talk from several people on the various SPF lists
advocating this type of thing and this type of behavior is only likely
to increase as time goes on--extreme times calls for extreme measures
principle or something.

It might be your best option to set the "smart-host" option (or whatever
that's called in postfix) so that your outgoing mails are relayed thru
your ISP's mail server.  Haven't had to do that here yet, but I'm
watching and waiting.
