Then the two service providers need to have some kind of infrastructure 
that they can use to arrange for this to happen properly, mediated by the 
user of course.

So, when the user makes the request, the forwarder needs to be able to say 
either "I can't do that, it will damage my reputation when spam is 
forwarded", or "OK, but first you need to confirm the arrangement with the 
receiving service provider, by clicking this button".

What's required is some kind of forwarding protocol, perhaps.
