I believe you're right on every count. I did, however, place an explanatory webpage on the mta reject message, so that the sysadmins on the verge of acquiring a clue can have the problem fixed.

AOL only started about a year ago, I've been doing it for over 5 or 6
years, the results speak for themselves.
If you run a network where the system admins are incompetant and do not do

a hosting server or a key server in a NOC, its just plain lazyness, and
they should be dismissed as such.
