I've been party to floods of spam arriving at various 
hostmaster@<domain> addresses, but I think that had everything to do 
with that specific address (along with webmaster@) being traditionally 
existent addresses so spammers just try them on spec. I've never cared 
enough to analyze the effectiveness of putting a non-standard address in 
the RNAME field.
