Their implementation is not 'broken'.
Rather, Yahoo has made a very conscious policy decision. So the "such
that" clause of your sentence is correct. That is, the effect really is
what you describe. But it's the result of an informed corporate choice
rather than software or operations error.
From background exchanges and Yahoo participation in the development of
DMARC, I believe they fully understood the technical and operations
effects of the decision.
Whether it is the 'right' choice is primarily a political debate, and
I'm not commenting on that.
