This isn't quite what you want, but ... I have always felt since the beginning that ISPs have the ability to control spam. All it really takes is automatically vetting the Headers of any email. They have the ability, as do I using online resources, to check the validity of the Headers to any email. If any Header addresses don't exist or it filters sthru overseas servers in getting to and from the US to overseas and back to the USA it's not going to be legitimate email and I don't want to see it. I've had one ISP say simply it can't be done, but I've done it for years at spamcop.com, and it sure can be done! Anythiung spoofed or otherwise "fixed" in the chain indicates and undeliverable mail anyway. Two others were more honest, simply claiming they don't have the resources to write the code and implement it; which is pure BS since it's a one time effort that once perfected as much as possible would run free. And on the speed of the computers email is carried on, I know for a fact it wouldn't delay normal emails unless they were already spammer/scammer friendly. I firmly believe this would take care of over 95% of spam on the internet, making detection easier and easier as time went on.
