Like it was mentioned, I would remind that BATV is a modification of
SES which came from SPF community.
Actually, it's the other way around.
You know I've been around during that time too - you better have very
good evidence before you make statement like above.
Sorry, pissing contests are off-topic for this list.
SES and BATV have very different goals. BATV protects against bounce
forgery blowback. SES is, as best I understand it, includes a signed
checksum of the message intended to let recipients check that the
message was really sent by the putative sender, and some sort of
callback to keep people from delivering the same message many times.
All that BATV does is to let you check incoming bounces to see if they
were provoked by something you sent. It's a much smaller goal, but
much more achievable.
