You're the law student, you tell us :-)

But I agree that it can be extended to Tor/Open Proxies, even 'knowingly'
running vulnerable software that allows people to send spam over your
SMTP server. Basically, it can be extended to say: You may not have any
service running on your server.
And that's where I think the argumentation is void.

You are not allowing them to use the server (as in shell account) but
provide a service (as in open port to connect to).

In the end, it's a matter of interpretion.
