I tend to agree that white-listing is usually not the best solution.... 

But please consider this case: one of our users tries to relay mail 
through our servers and is originating from a Dial-up IP address with
very bad reputation (maybe within "truncate") but is correctly authenticated.
Would you agree that such mails should not be marked as spam or even 
discarded (at least not based on IP address reputation)?

I will consider this option.

This is what we do. But we receive quite many false positives alerts from
our users, and it is a time consuming task to report all the false-positives. 
Very often we are not sure, whether these false positiv reports improve
filter quality...
