It strikes me as an idea well worth trying.  I believe you mentioned exim, I 
haven't used exim in a long time so I can't help you there.

As an aside this would be very easy to implement in postfix (from 
testing/unstable only) using SMTP access policy delegation.  A very simple 
script can be plugged into postfix at the RCPT stage, perform the DUL check 
and greylist as appropriate.  I am working on an access policy delegation 
script right now and may just add checks similar to your suggestion.
