Should the base spec provide a way to do vacation-style forwarding?
What should this mechanism be?

It can be there but it has to be optional, since vacation forwarding depends 
a database of addresses-already-sent-to, which implies significant per-user
storage, storage some implementations may not want to allow for. Management of
this database may be a bit more than we need in the base document, too...

I agree with Ned here.   It is an extension that we should probably work 
on right away though because it is such a highly sought after function.   
Doing that would be a nice way to test out how well the extension 
mechanisms specified in the base document work.
