This all can - sort of - be interpreted as 'from those networks
thy must AUTH LOGIN', but only as a complement of the set of
networks from which that isn't needed *FOR OUTBOUND RELAY*.
It could be possible to add mechanism to list networks for which
AUTH LOGIN is required, but where that would really be necessary ?
( That is, define a skenario, and you might get it... )
