All true, but more to the point, the reports include IP addresses and 
domain names of mail servers and DKIM signers, not IP or e-mail addresses 
of individual users.  There's no PII other than in the extreme case that 
the domain has only a single user so all of the mail can be attributed to 
that user.

R's,
John

PS: updated the ticket title to say aggregate reports

PPS: that extreme case lets me tell things like how many NANOG subscribers 
get their mail at gmail.
