Its getting implemented because its easy, not "It's easy to deploy an incomplete solution". Why does my Spidey-sense scream that this is a train wreck about to happen? ;) > because its complete.

There's probably a *large* difference between: a) The number of sites that deployed an SPF DNS entry b) The number of sites that bit the bullet and *didnt* put "~all" at the end. c) The number of sites checking other site's SPF records d) The number of sites rejecting mail due to (possibly in part) bad/missing SPF. The number of sites doing (a) is likely high. How many are doing b-d? In addition, I suspect a large percentage of sites who deployed SPF to any extent are thinking it solves 70% of *one* problem, when it's actually a 70% solution for something else....
