You can already do that now. I have the following in my Mailscanner.conf;
SpamAssassin Rule Actions = SpamScore>25=>not-store

That way spam that scores over 25 isn't stored. You could do a lot of
different things. Spam that scores a certain range but didn't hit bayes_99
could be sent to a different box for spam training. The rule actions stuff can
do many amazing things!
