This draft presents a mechanism to simplify one of the cumbersome 
aspects of mailing, when one needs to send mails only to a subset of 
mail-ids from an alias [ALIAS] . The basic intention is only to minimize 
the complication and difficulty of a mail user when a mail needs to be 
sent to n - m mail IDs i.e. send it to a group Id of n and exclude m
from the alias [ALIAS] list.

As the draft lacks any indication of where discussion should take
place, I'm sending these comments to the author and the IETF discussion
list, with informational copies to the ietf-822 and ietf-smtp lists.

All of your comments miss the most important points - namely that this
proposal breaks layering and it isn't backward compatible with the 
installed base.    For those reasons alone there's no way that this
proposal should be seriously considered.
