i don't think there is a well defined reason.. however vpopmail is designed 
for many users. and as you can see from the directory structure  (chmod 700 
vpopmail.vchkpw) it is not meant that every user puts his own .qmail-whatever 
files in that tree, even more so, as most of these users don't know what to 
put in it and could do some damage by (imagine someone putting a 
|rm -fR ~vpopmail    alias into his own .qmail file..)

well, some of us know what to do with .qmail files, but no one forces you to 
use vdelivermail for them. you can probably put them into 
/var/qmail/users/assign and still have all other users of that domain use

bogofilter is best used with different spam/ham lists for every user. as it 
learns, which mail users receive you'll get less good results when you use 
only one database for all. furthermore, imagine a newsletter. some users may 
see it as spam, and mark it that way..

i use it in a domain based way: one database for each domain (they have only 
few users, who often share the same interests)

also, why do you have to filter the mail for them? add the **spam** part to 
the subject and have them filter those mails themselves.
