I can therefore envision cases of Sieve scripts that might wish to use both.

This isn't specific to just Kristin's comment, but if you're talking about using sieve in the SMTP transaction, when does this happen? After MAIL FROM? After each RCPT TO? After HELO? (the last is a bit far-fetched, but it can be used as a more structured way of rejecting servers on DNS RBL).
