If the time of final delivery for a system is such that the default mailbox

is on another server, then the system is going to have to be able to deal
with it.

From the start I've considered the "mailbox" to be an opaque label. If 
a server decides to interpret mailbox names as IMAP URLs (say), SIEVE 
shouldn't care. While I agree that there are silly ways to abuse such a 
facility, as long as it's allowed you can't count on a folder being 
local (short of mandating that in the spec).
