That depends on your interpretation of "spamassassin".

is not using the SpamAssassin rules and ist purpose is not to block spam
but to filter mails due to their content. It is using only the rules you
supply and nothing more. 

What do you mean by "the customer does not want spamassassin"? Does he
not want spam being filtered by spamassassin, does he not want to use
the engine (even though the footprint should be minimal with MCP at
least compared to "usual" spamassassin)?
