I asked for a technical question and hoped for a technical response,
i.e. if a white-listing for recipients has been implemented. You,
however, just tell me that this would be a »hard sell«.

I see this from a different viewpoint. I have to receive emails reliably
and timely over a address which is handled by this mail system that
applies greylisting.  And in my case, I do not know in advance where
the emails come from as my students use quite a diverse set of mail
services. So white-listing senders does not help in my case.  If I have
a phone call and someone is sending me some documents to be seen while
we are still talking, a delay of even 5 minutes is a show-stopper. And
to lose emails and not even knowing what is lost is a disaster in my case.
