Ok, now I understand.  As I've already said, graylisting on /27
netblocks amounts to inventing new network standards, which I believe
should go through the IETF standardization process before we block
email from people who don't comply with our newly invented standards.

If you don't think the standard could make it through the IETF,
doesn't that tell you something?
