If memory serves, we've seen reports from several others that the size
limit notation causes at least a couple of the biggest Receivers to not
emit reports. If you check the list archives, I believe I recall such a
case within the past few months.

You probably don't want to point the "ruf=" tag at anything remotely
like a personal mailbox for the type of domains you described. And I
generally recommend a separate "service" mailbox for each.

While the number of aggregate ("rua") reports will generally max out at
a few per receiving domain per day, the forensic reports (or whatever
we're calling them now) vary based on who may be spoofing your domain
(modulo anybody forwarding your messages/breaking your signatures). That
can get very big, very suddenly. In extreme cases, like a very "popular"
brand, it could be enough volume to seriously impact your main mailstore
with little warning.
