	Okay, let's take your non-standard TLD example.

	It'd be pretty easy to write a sendmail ruleset that would
	allow anybody anywhere to relay TO THOSE TLD's but not to any
	other mail server.

	I'm sorry to come off so negative, Roeland, but I'm shocked
	by how little research you've done here.  (If you were a little
	more polite about it I'd be tempted to write the ruleset for
	you right now.)
