I finally had a chance to look at this. Having done so, the question

I'm still not entirely sure how IMAP-SIEVE would signal *which*
message failed in a MULTIAPPEND set, actually
- I did look, and Section 2.2.2's coverage of this particular problem
is, well, exceedingly economic.
But this is a specific issue, rather than the more general problem.
This ignores the interesting cases of whether an implementation
ignores, for the purposes of Sieve, events caused by Sieve scripts,
since otherwise two mailboxes could have conflicting scripts that
cheerfully bounced an APPENDed message backwards and forwards for all
Sieve fileinto caused by IMAP Sieve is not the same as IMAP COPY, but in
order to avoid any doubts I agree that the Security Considerations
should also mention that.
The Security Considerations section clearly states that
implementations might choose to do so, maybe, but only for flagchanges
on Tuesdays in Summer during non-leap years.
