Both of these assume I know every person who needs to e-mail me, and
everything they will send me. Theo, you're active in enough open
source projects to know better.

Well then we need to alter the code. While bareword domain matching
might make sense, it doesn't make sense for /a/valid/system/path/
file.pl for "file.pl" to be checked. Zero hits on spam corpus.

Frankly, spam doesn't work unless people can just click it. So we
really only need to look for things that stupid Windows programs will
try to interpret for the user. The file.pl example above will never
get a user to the file.pl spam site.
