But on a BT-wide level, could probably save them a fair amount of
bandwidth.  It could well sum up to a reasonable improvement on their
large pipes.

Think: In which world is speech most free: 

1) A world where you can send single personal messages to anyone, but
can't send multiple copies of the same message to people who haven't
authorized you spending their resources that way. 

2) A world where you only can send messages to people who have
explicitly authorized you to do so.

If we win the fight against spammers, we get world 1. If we lose, we
get world 2.
