At one stage i= was thought to represent different mail streams with

The question was raised and dispelled

the idea was in the air, and I read it in some deliverability documents in 
the early days (tho wrong too)...
As I said, there were a variety of intentions, descriptions, desires and
claims for i=.  Different people had different views.  None of the
alternatives was in the spec and therefore none were standardized.

Yes, it was an unfortunate turn of events that wasn't discovered until it was 
rather late in the game, so we wound up punting on the issue of what should 
be in the i= value and essentially said that it was an opaque value that was 
site dependent.

It was known really early on, it's just that some people wanted to wait 8 years 
do the work.
