About a month ago, I brought up the issue of forged spam and responsibility, noting some ideas about how it might be prevented. Derek mentioned that it had come up before and his idea had been shot down at the time.

Well, good news. Now Derek describes how the idea is now evolving into an RFC. I'd love to see that (or something like it) implemented by the big players. It won't fix the spam problem, but it will help.
