The important thing  to remember about bonded sender is  that it doesn't
necessarily guarantee anything, only that you are willing to pay for the
messages you  send. They  even claim that  it won't  guarantee delivery,
only ``improve  the reliability,''  which is absurd  since they  made it
unreliable in the first place by silently deleting messages. Sounds like
a fine  racket to me...  Indeed, this  kind of system  is discriminatory
against the little guy who doesn't  want to fork out $1400; hopefully it
isn't widely deployed.
