How, may I ask, do you suggest providing the logic needed to 
intelligently block connections as necessary?

I don't see what is so hard about adding a few lines to sendmail.cf and 
making sure they are added properly and here the only requirement is 
that there is at least one tab between the LHS and RHS of the ruleset 
lines. Or maybe you did not read what the OP wanted to achieve at the top.
