That would be 1000's of other people's servers getting traffic from you because someone forged their address in the spam. You are effectively doubleing the total load spam places on the net.

This doesn't scale.
How so? Are you maybe confusing reject with bounce? If address verification takes place while the SMTP connection is still up, no forged adresses get messaged, at least not by the server doing the rejecting.
