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.

Please pay attention.

I didn't say that the final recipient shouldn't make the call, I said
that he should make the call before the mail is accepted by his mail
server, so that the spammer doesn't get another $currency_unit for
sending his spam.  This necessarily means that no mail client sees the
spam, which in turn means that Evolution is not the place to do this.
