There are many ways to say "7 bits ought to be enough
for everybody", but "infinite" is a bit exaggerated. ;-)

Or it's a new octal system, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, INF

That's cheating.  If the WS bit is set I'd expect a WS
entry, with the WS policy and whitelisting instructions.

Sure, at the moment there are no different whitelisting
instructions for the MULTI sets, but that's not obvious.
And sooner or later it will change.

If it's really very different, then it's also good enough
for its own MULTI bit.  But a different set of spamtraps
is no real difference.  A different policy for inclusions,
exclusions, or whitelisting is interesting.

People expecting no FPs at all should try the empty list,
works like a charm.  Of course it won't identify any spam.
