The only point I feel strongly about is this:
2. Why? Maybe I want to make a folder of messages that I have 
rejected, or redirect them to a processor that updates my "bad 
people  to filter against" list. What's the problem with rejecting 
and doing  one of these other things?

I do not want the spec to require that users be granted the ability 
to make a mail server lie.

But *if* reject sends an MDN (with the MDN-sent-automatically and 
automatic-action modes), as I believe it should, and the MDN for 
reject is "deleted", which is defined as:

   "deleted"      The message has been deleted.  The recipient may or
                              may not have seen the message.  The
                              recipient might "undelete" the message at
                              a later time and read the message.

then I don't see this as a lie. You are informing the sender that his 
message has been automatically deleted from the users normal mail 
reading facilities and may not be seen by anyone. That's all true.

If there is consensus for the other stuff and you need some text, I 
might be able to contribute.

Ok, right, that would change things substantially.  In fact, a lot of
the action interaction garbage goes away, because who cares what you do
with it?

Actually, given this, could we make reject required?  That's a good
thing, too.

Contributions are welcome.
