It does not matter since the first documented sendmail issue is "how to
open" it. Reading this issue may be cataloged as RTFM and people who
install the system by default and leave it as-is, they never rtfm.

RTFM lovers already know how to bind sendmail on external interfaces and
how to install/select sendmail as default MTA, if they want to.

I'd rather opt for a very restrictive postfix aiming to protect newbies
and to secure deployments by default than for a somehow constrained
sendmail just to please the statistics.
