Do I understand that not about the restriction to "[A-Z -]"? 
If so, it wouldn't help for "-w whitclnt".
It also wouldn't help adding "-E -l logdir` so that the point-and-click
CGI scripts could be used to maintain the "-w whiteclnt" file.

I hope the SpamAssassin documentation mentions that `dccproc -R` is
only good when the MTA adds a sufficiently standard Received line.

See http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/dcc-tree/dccproc.html
and http://www.rhyolite.com/anti-spam/dcc/dcc-tree/dccproc.html
as well as your copy of the DCC source for the dccproc man page.
