Yes, a sieve extension to interface with the IMAP ANNOTATE extension makes
sense, assuming of course that IMAP ANNOTATE is approved. But it only makes
sense to use annotations for storying expiry information if it is done
per-message. And even then a separate IMAP extension would need to be defined.

I suspect it makes more sense (in general) to ahve a per-folder
(ANNOTATEMORE) entry to perform expiration (Cyrus IMAP provides this now
using a vendor annotation).  I suppose a per-folder annotation could just
be used as a default value for a per-message annotation too, however..
