I've just sent the -02 document to the drafts editor.

3. Is specifying a :comparator for a :count match required, or should we

At the moment, it is not required, but since the default comparator is i;ascii-casemap it really must be specified.

I could see changing the default comparator to i;ascii-numeric if :count is specified. This would modify the base specification which says that the default comparator is i;ascii-casemap.

It would be nice if require "relational" implies require "i;ascii-numeric", but I think that would be a tough sell since it would violate the base specification. Also it is possible to create a sieve script that uses relational, but does not use i;ascii-numeric.
