Gateway operators will manage.  Syntax and semantics are

In theory, perhaps. But we don't want the email expires to work the same way that it works in practice with netnews. So if the semantics of the two turn out to be identical in practice, we would consider that a failure from the email perspective.

I'm a lot more concerned with having email work well, than I am with having email and netnews work the same way.
