This would be one solution.

I do not care to be honest.

The most simple and most flexible solution though would be to generate a
definate SPAM or NOT SPAM within the header. 

Examples for "real" spam:
X-MailScanner-SpamCheck: spam, SpamAssasin (SCORE=....)
X-MailScanner-SpamCheck: spam, spamcop.net, SpamAssasin (SCORE=....)

Example for a whitelisted which triggers SpamAssassin:

X-MailScanner-SpamCheck: not spam, whitelisted, SpamAssasin (SCORE=....)

If you implement this you could tell the mail client to only handle
mails with "X-MailScanner-SpamCheck: spam" in the header. If possible
one should be able to configure whether or not "not spam" messages
should show the SpamAssassin score with "X-MailScanner-Spamscore: sssss"
or not.
