It does, but actual milter service (i.e., accepting of connections from
MTAs) is handled by libmilter, so that's the right place to put such
access controls. What gets passed to opendkim is information about
the SMTP client that contacted an MTA, not which MTA is talking to

libmilter is code we don't control. At best we could forward this
request, or submit a patch to Sendmail in the hopes they will adopt it.

We could also check to see how the MTA identifies itself (via the $j
macro), but there's nothing stopping an MTA from lying about its identity
in this manner. If you'd like to have a simple check against that list,
we could look at adding such a thing.
