In my personal experience with DCC to this point (on a rather small
vanity domain), mail is either marked with very low fuz counts -OR- it's
marked with one or more fuz counts of 'many'.  There really is very
little in-between.  Which is why my second comment below was....

I think anybody would agree that a fuz count of 'many' (either fuz
count) is bulky enough to warrant the flag being set.

Technically, yes, but in reality, no.  We are allowing our users to
filter spam into a junk email folder that is in their inbox.  They can
always whitelist non-spam.
