For its default policy, postfix should probably ignore the netmask
(i.e, assume a /32) on interfaces flagged as IFF_POINTTOPOINT.
And I think that policy is suspect anyway -- would you want
cable-modem customers to have mailers that relay by default for the
virus-ridden infected open proxies on their cable subnet?
(would be simpler if we had IFF_EVIL/IFF_GOOD interface flags ;-) )
