This is similar to what graymilter <URL:http://www.acme.com/> does.
Graymilter does not work with triplets, only with the sender's IP
address. So to be effective you have to have longer graytimes (I use 5
hours). Having graytimes like 5 minutes without triplets means that
spam will get through.

whitelisting for the graymilter which you can find at:
Right now I am using the third of the described versions and it seems to
be working well enough.
