Interoperatabiliy and functionality is what a standards body is for.
DMARC is a system that allows 1st parties to announce to 3rd parties
what to do with something delivered by a 2nd party, all without any
standards or feedback/care for the 2nd party.  It sits atop 2
standards that were never intended for the purpose (rfc5322.From
blocking) they are being used for.
