I agree that if a signing domain publishes discardable then the MLM
should discard it. Let's apply a little logic here. The types of
mailstreams that have been identified as being suitable candidates for
ADSP discardable have always been ones that would not be appropriate
(bank notifications, etc) for passing through MLMs in the first place.
While an ecard might be sent to all the members of a list, this is
enough of a corner case that if the domain publishes discardable then
that message should be discarded even though it would otherwise be
If a domain publishing ADSP discardable has not gotten control of their
mailstreams then all I can say is "Darwin was right".
Darwin was indeed right. But an organism that is not fit to survive may
struggle on for millions of years before it finally becomes extinct.
Agreed that domains that asserts discardable SHOULD should have separate
non-discardable mailstreams more suited to MLMs. But what incentive do
they have to make this change? So far just some "advice" in Murray's
draft. Yes, eventually they will all do it right, but "eventually" can be
an awful long time. In the meantime, MLMs will have to cope.
