Re: [ietf-822] New Version Notification for draft-crocker-inreply-react-00.txt

Someone asked me about this feature some years ago when social media was becoming popular and I suggested simply adding a disposition to Message Disposition Notification (RFC 8098, STD 85). The machinery is already in some systems, MDNs give you the ability to easily get back to the source message through Message-ID, and the adornment ("Joe Smith liked this message" or "❤️" or whatever) could then be added to the display of the original message, etc. No new mechanism needed and I think somewhat quicker deployment. It would probably just take an Informational document with a pointer to STD 85.
