What makes you think I want to claim to be "anyone on the planet"?
I have a valid domain and I want replies and bounces to go to it.

I have no IP.  Outgoing mail from home goes via my ISP's smarthost.
Incoming mail goes to his POP server.

What do you mean by "a domain-authorized relay point"?  It was my
understanding that the idea behind SPF was that I would list in the DNS for
my domain the IPs that were authorized to send mail claiming to be from my
domain.  That would be fine with me, but I evidently misunderstood.
