Mark's solution is, of course, more technically elegant than what I'm abut  
to suggest but I wonder if, trying to think sideways a little, you could  
catch the majority of the messages you wish to moderate by one or both of:
  - set 'max_num_recipients' to 2 so anything with a Cc is caught
  - set a spam trap for anything that already has [subject-prefix] in the  
subject line.
