There's a lot more people doing SMTP than doing BGP.  Also, AS1312 (us) and our
related routing swamp does BGP peering with less than a dozen peers, but we end
up talking SMTP to a good chunk of the world.  I've got one machine that all by
itself talked to 2,615 hosts in 1,612 second-level domains yesterday.

Unless you're advocating a return to the X.400-style ADMD/PRMD stuff,
this really is a non-starter.  I don't have time to set up 1,600+ peering agreements,
and possibly have to set up more just because somebody subscribes to a mailing list
(either somebody elsewhere subscribes to ours, or one of my users subscribes elsewhere).

And history has passed its own verdict on ADMD/PRMD.
