Why would you see "rejectable" as being different from "all" assertions?
Just about everyone thinks EITHER that "rejectable" would be redundant

narrowing "all"'s meaning down to two choices is not an agreement.
This ambiguity is paralysing deployment - a conservative sender who means
"except-mlist" must publish "unknown", and a conservative receiver who
sees "all" must read it as "except-mlist" (and thus as "unknown" in most

Rather than try to settle the fight over what "all" means, let's just
deprecate it and give each camp their own, *unambiguous* flag.
