I've skimmed your paper, it seems very well thought out, I also believe that
a distributed consent system, or more accurately distributed  rules denying
consent, would be beneficial as it would allow any "upstream" MTA to discard
messages for which a rule existed saving downstream MTA's & MUA's from the
effort of even considering them.

I tried some time ago to articulate some tests which any proposal ought to
at least acknowledge, which you can find here..
 http://www.killerbees.co.uk/draft-irtf-asrg-criteria-00.html

You may find them helpful.

I'll try to find time to give your paper fuller attention.
