Adding more settings is best to be avoided. I've added the header:

I am not sure Sieve has access to enough information to make such an 
assessment. And I don't think adding SPF/SRS-specific code to Sieve is a 
good idea. It would also not be very straight-forward since the 
low-level mail sending code is part of Dovecot itself.
