I don't think there's any misunderstanding....

Ned, you inappropriately referred to the last published draft, which is NOT the same as the proposal I made in the email that started this thread. See your misunderstanding? It makes the points you made inapplicable.

It's not only that. IF Sun or any SIEVE implementors were to start using a new, different recommended behavior for REJECT on the basis of a new standard, then when server software gets upgraded to one of these new server implementations, users with existing SIEVE scripts would suddenly start seeing new behavior. That's not very good for users.
That's not what I proposed: The proposal in my email that started this thread DOES NOT REQUIRE that the configured behavior of reject change. Is any part of that not clear now? If a server gets upgraded there's nothing in my proposal that prevents the upgrade script from setting the _____ as part of the upgrade, while new installations, on the other hand, default to the better behaviour. IMO, the harm to users of blowback is greater than the harm Lisa mentions. Do you disagree, Lisa?
