I totally agree with you. 

But it is a useful option for countries (f.e. Germany) where it is required by law to notify the sender when a message is not being delivered.

I think this is a very bad idea. Most high scoring spam *should* be 
actual spam, probably with a spoofed sender. If you can't reject this 
mail at incoming SMTP time (not possible with current MailScanner), it 
is best to not respond to the purported sender in any way.
