sendmail supports LMTP even for a spawned LDA rather than a LMTP deamon.
However, I don't know what to prefer.

Well, I'm not sure. But as far as I know sendmail communicates primarily
with stdin/stdout with the LDA (as inetd). However, for permanent failures
both stdout and stderr are joint together. I haven't read the sendmail
sources well enough to find the actual piece of code, though.
