Yep - makes sense - faked addresses ... as you say we're talking IP's
for whitelisting anyway.
hose records don't expire.

Yeh yeh .. Correct - strictly speaking MX is inbound - however, its
not uncommon to use the phrase - and in fact having MXO records might
even be useful - instead we have SPF ...
If you prefer, one can instead say "the set of hosts which given mail
sending domain uses for its outbound mail".
I prefer the obvious and simple 'outbound MX host' ... :-)
But yes ...
