Right, what I meant is that aggregation is not necessary in that case as
a method for allowing the MTA serving the lists to reach sufficient
throughput, because the limiting factor is the speed of the handful of
gateways that the messages have to go through in a typical corporate
setup. Some gateways may process aggregated messages faster, for instance
because they only support one connection :-)
