I believe the senders system is aware such declarations are not a 'want'.
Instead, it allows the sender to state - "Partake in low hanging fruit"
because I am giving you, optionally and for free, insider information
about this domain.

This leads back to the nub of the matter, which is that receivers for
the most part have no reason to care what senders want.
DMARC suffers from the same issue as any other policy self-publication
such as SPF and ADSP, that there's no way to tell whether the policy
publish by some random domain actually reflects what they do, and whether
your users will be happy or sad if you believe it.
I believe that you and Yahoo and Facebook understand your policies. But
for some random blurble.com, who can tell?
