I'm sure it's worth some -- but, of course, spam still gets through.

You would think so; but any variant address needs only be added to the
allowed list once. My experience is you get a dozen or so of those when
the list is new, and then rarely thereafter. And I'm never seen spam
get through, then.
> A few procmail rules gets rid of most spam anyway.
Ah, a strategic retreat from blocking it at the mailing-list level.
