That's no good. The spec says messages with multiple addresses in From:
SHOULD be rejected. It doesn't say anything about whether or not any
of the domains in the From: header should be checked to see whether or
not they're using DMARC. And in fact a reply from Michael Adkins strongly
implied that one SHOULD NOT attempt to do DNS lookups on the From:
addresses to see whether or not they are using DMARC.
This part of the spec needs to be changed.
