It's worth checking.

It would be worse than ugly.  It's not just the SMOP (small matter
of programming), but the question of what dccm should do if a
rejection threshold is reached for one of the names for an alias
but not all of them.  Dccm can only tell sendmail to reject or
accept for the original name.
