The mail admin on the other side probably applied the same reasoning before enabling their reject policy.

Go through the archives and look at how many potential contributions we may have missed out on if we add more barriers due to being hardasses. Most users of services that have a reject DMARC policy probably don't know about that, it may be out of their control, and they may not have a choice of which address they send from.

We are an open project, so we should be strive to be open to contributions despite the bad decisions of other mail admins.
