A downstream filter may want to send a report in case a message is
invalid, and, say, the domain is subscribed to some sort of FBL.
Possibly, learning what is the relevant domain would ease its job.

I don't actually have that case: it is just a possibility. Thus, I'm
going to omit that propspec, unless there is an established
alternative that makes sense. Since you said you were going to amend
opendkim, I downloaded the last version (2.1.1), but saw no changes in
that respect. I thought you might just have planned it, hence I'm asking.

FWIW, the behavior I'm going to code provides for the following, in
case of a missing or invalid author domain signature: either do an
action or set a result according to the relevant condition.

  condition => action | result
  nxdomain => reject | nxdomain
  other error => ignore --I write no A-R in this case
  policy=unknown => ignore --nor in this one
  policy=all => reject | fail
  policy=discardable => drop | discard

Reject or drop can be turned into ignore by generic filter options
(i.e. never do that) or specific whitelisting (i.e. based on spf or
another dkim signature). In such cases the filter sets the result.
Oh, and it sets dkim-adsp=pass if it finds one.
