While it's true that a c/r system which whitelists senders is spoofable,
that's not a characteristic of all c/r systems.

For example:

a c/r system which only lets a single message through for each c/r

a c/r system which whitelists pgp keys (allowing through messages signed
by them).

Both of these require a significantly higher commitment to dealing with
incoming email than current spammers have exhibitted.
