I think that makes it clearer that the intent is to consider the
verbatim unexpanded reason argument.

I agree, however, don't we also want to require that the calculation to 
the :subject argument?

That's for sure.

I believe there was a time when we didn't want to refer to variables in the
vacation draft bevcause it was assumed variables would take much longer to
complete. That's no longer true - variables is in last call while we're still
fine tuning vacation. So how about simply referring to the variables document
and say that any hash SHOULD cover the unexpanded :subject and reason

I would appreciate that.  Sieve has gotten the critical mass that more
and more systems will offer it soon, and by referecing variables, we
could avoid a repetition of this discussion next year.

Btw: The unexpected may happen and suddenly everybody is happy with the
vacation extension draft. ;-)  I am currently working on the Exim code
and asked, because it was the last open issue for me.
