SA has a full featured test system, and you can logically combine the results of
all those test.
So there is not only HAM and SPAM when you use SA!

But that is mostly neglectable considering all the other processing steps (virus
scan, postfix, DNS queries, ...)

come on - any classification tool has false-positives and false-negatives.
Simply claiming rspamd does not have
any wrong classification is definitely wrong.

We use SA for more than 10 years now, it is extremely stable and reliable. So I
would do everything
to keep SA. If we detect errors, we fix them instead of replacing the whole
software stack with
something new and untested.

If you want something else, please implement it and send patches (it really easy
to do).
