I wouldn't count on it.  The reasonable approach to this kind of
nonsense is for the relatively small set of ISPs using DMARC policy to
whitelist the mail they already know it mishandles.

No, not at all.  Comcast sent out a press release specifically saying
that they have no plans to publish a DMARC policy record.  Remember
that AOL and Yahoo had huge security breaches in which crooks stole
customer info including address books, and they're misusing DMARC as
as panic reaction to try to compensate, sort of.

Let's just say this move hasn't made any them friends in the industry.
