Sendmail: delaying mail based on "soft" thresholds

An interesting feature of DCC could be to have a "soft" threshold.  A
soft threshold would be DCC counts more than the configured "not bulk"
threshold but less than the "definately bulk" threshold.

The purpose of the soft threshold would be to hold on to mail in the
local delivery queue for a while and see if the DCC counts on the
message increase, possibly to the hard threshold at which point it
would be treated as "definately bulk".

I know that somebody did such a thing with Sendmail but not being a
Sendmail geek myself I am wondering how one could do it.
