I'm hosting mail for (quick check) 151 domains and I have postmaster  
and abuse set up on only 3 of them. Too many people are doing spam("$_ 
\@$domain") for @every_name_under_the_sun to make it sensible to  
expose any more aliases than absolutely necessary. Typically you  
don't get a lot of spam directly to postmaster@ but you get shitloads  
of bounces due to spammers spoofing from addresses in that domain.
