      where can I find the latest version of the RFC on filters?
      And if I want to propose any additions, is this the place to do it?

   This document describes a mail filtering language for filtering
   messages at time of final delivery.  It is designed to be independent
   of protocol, and implementable on either a mail client or mail
   server.  It is meant to be extensible, simple, and independent of
   access protocol, mail architecture, and operating system.  It is
   suitable for running on a mail server where users may not be allowed
   to execute arbitrary programs, such as on black box IMAP servers, as
   it has no variables, loops, or ability to shell out to external

        a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
        exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
        "multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
