 If you trust the list, then why add additional load to your box by spam
scanning (with the associated overheads) when you can reject at SMTP

 Its not as bad as you may think, for example, with Exim, you can use
conditions in ACL's to determine what is scanned and what is not.

 For example, we use Exim and SQL and have SQL based settings and
whitelists. In essence we do exactly what your "what if" question asks
