And since 75% of all internet pkts these days is spam your point is valid.

SV is no worse then grey-listing in fact probably LESS, it causes more 
retries and bandwith yet nobody seems to have a problem with those that do

It's simple, if anyone is so concerned about a few extra bytes of traffic 
in SV, you can solve all of your paranoia simply like this

telnet core
conf t
access-list 191 deny tcp any any eq 25

int FastEthernet0
ip access-group 191 in

..there all your problems have now gone away :P
