Hello Craig -- I endorse your concern about preepting the ACK disucssion
and work from ietf-ack.

The issue is very complex and must be dealt with very carefully.

There are very serious problems with the need for per recipient requests
for ACKs of verious kinds, which appear to need carriage in what is now
called the SMTP RCPT addresses.  This is very difficult to do without
changing someting in SMTP, or requiring modifications in fielded
implementations of SMTP.

We need to think about all this very carefully for a while.  

Haste is our enemy on this one.  Best...\Stef
