please state such reasons.  I do not think it is a good idea to allow
the recipient system to outright lie about the success of the delivery.

To create a record of what has been rejected so that the accuracy of
the test in the script can be verified,

there are no logging actions in Sieve, but most implementations can
provide such logs without it being triggered by explicit script actions.

(a hypothetical logging action should not be incompatible with any other
actions, IMO.)

or to store for forward to an abuse@ mailbox maintained by the sys

I don't think this is sufficient reason to allow an e-mail system to
misrepresent the delivery status.
