i have tried this, it's not useful, so i didn't leave the check in
it's very common, perhaps even the norm that the IP address which
delivers mail to me itself will not accept an incoming port 25

you can both still add checking for bogus MX records, e.g. poinging to
private/reserved address space, MX pointing to CNAME etc.
The first can be done in postfix by using check_sender_mx_access, for the
latter you need using something like rfc-clueless blacklist.
