I sincerely apologize for my ignorance ahead of time, this is really not
meant to start a flame war:

Is maintaining a list of valid recipients on a gateway really that big
of a problem that you have to run around your systems compiling and
configuring various milters? We have thousands of clients that run
everything from pif to Exchange and the subject of verifying recipients
has not come up once in over five years - just add them to the gateway
when you make their mailbox.
