Yes. We also care that others having their own gateways will be
doing things that are out of our control, and may cause much more
damage to the mailing list and all mailing list recipients, than the
few who might potentially be served by a properly run gateway.
We have to balance the potential risk against the potential
benefit, both with the current operators and their operations, and
with any potential future operators and their operations.
This is a potentially slippery slope here, and we need to make
sure of our footing.
