Not serious, no - that overloading is too repulsive for me to be serious

Ah.  I would just consider it to be the wrong place, even if one
did want a separate session to watch mailboxes and folders.
(One might bury that in this MUPDATE thing, for example.)

Consider this question: If a client wishes to "manage sieve", does it 
sound out-of-scope to monitor what the sieve implementation is doing?

It does to me.  But I see your point.
