Agreed, and that's the way I use it.

But anti-virus and anti-spam tackle very different needs, different
logic, different way of solving the problem.

That's when confusing them both that you end up with horribly bloated
software, that consumes way too much resources and become unmanageable.

Not to mention it does not help the users to get a clear image of how
their system is working.
