Another thing to think about is whether a company whose main competitor is a governmental entity (in this case, the US Postal Service) can ever break through to RM status. You may be able to generate some numbers that look good on the RM spreadsheet, but when you have a competitor that is going to be subsidized through thick and thin, it is tough to say that the private company holds a "monopoly" on the business.
