"One can think of spam as a complex ecology"

I agree with your list, but you forgot the most important, most influential group. The group that makes the most money in the spamming industry and stands to benefit the most from any spam increase: The spam protection industry.
They need spams just like Symantec needs malware. They are the ones with the power to prevent any serious antispam legislation.

It won't be long before commercial blog antispam software will become as common as email antispam software, and when it happens, there will be a strong corporate interest in maintaining a high level of blog spam.

Spam blurs the lines between the supposedly "good guys" and the bad ones ...
