Regarding the acceptance of mail to 'postmaster' at each domain... Is ALL mail required to be accepted or do the RFCs permit rejection of obvious spam.

Technically, yes.  However, a lot of servers run RBL's and check at the connection phase.  They will reject connections from black listed hosts before they ever see who the mail is addressed to.
