I'll also note that a small comment from Jacob bothers the heck out of me.
He said that the behavior in the receiving UA wasn't specified.  This makes
it sound as if the semantics of the function are not clear enough.  Sure

X.400 does not specify in very much detail how a receiving UA is to
implement receiving an obsoleting message. We can of course choose
to define this more clearly in Internet mail than it is defined
in X.400.
