Yes, but you have done this by denying the MTA the chance to optomise 
delivery by packing multiple similar recipients together.   The MTAs 
delivery strategy is indeed simpler.... as in we don't need no stinking 
optomisation - it has the freedom to choose... from the one option you 
have left it.

However we're getting to religious arguments here.  Suffice it to say 
that should mailman go VERP only, I move to something else :-)
