The way I solve this is to use a seperate mail hub for incoming mail 
(where the MX points) and the users authenticate against a different 
server which does not do SPF because ONLY authenticated users are 
allowed to talk to it.

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of 
arriving safely in a nice looking and well preserved body, but rather 
to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly 
proclaiming, "WOW! WHAT A RIDE!"
