If the mail is rejected, as opposed to being accepted and binned,
the spammer hasn't done his job, which in my book is a Good Thing.

This is far too simplistic. Not all mail identified as spam is in fact
spam, and only the final recipient can make the call. There is no one
canonically right answer for every situation, so there is a place for
client-side spam filtering in many use cases.
