That is not always the case; too many sites still accept mail, only to
bounce it later. Where to, if you have a send-only setup?

A working Internet mail setup implies the ability to receive email as well
as sending it. A sane default, IMHO, requires that both work reliably, OR
that both *don't* work.

Given that the former option is not possible to achieve automatically, the
latter is the only sane option.
