milter-spamc does not read SpamAssassin user configurations. It takes 
the information given to it by SpamAssassin (required_hits, score, and 
report if requested) and acts on it according to site policy. There is 
no way to know whether the required_hits is the system or user setting 
and any such option would be applied to all returned results. I think 
this request is to far out there to be generally useful/used.

Why do you score lower, but want to reject higher? Why not just set your 
SpamAssassin required hits higher in the first place.

Yes. You could act on the X-Spam-Status or place the values in the 
subject with the -S option and parse from that. A short awk script could 
do it.
