And  about editheader:

 3. Action addheader:

 The addheader action adds a header field to the existing message
 header.  If the field-name is not a valid 7-bit US-ASCII header
 field name as described by the [IMAIL] "field-name" nonterminal
 syntax element, the implementation MUST flag an error.  The
 addheader action does not affect Sieve's implicit keep.

I am against this 7bit ASCII restriction. Once draft-ietf-eai-utf8headers gets a rfc number, it will be normal to add UTF8 headers, apart the ASCII 7 bits one.

The restriction is on the field *name*, not on the value. The EAI draft you mention does not currently permit non-ASCII characters in the field name and suggestions to permit them have been consistently rejected.

 5 Interaction with Other Sieve Extensions

shouldn|t it be canceLLed instead of canceLed? I am not an expert, but consider canceLLed is better.

American english usage, which is what the RFC series tends to follow, prefers "canceled" over "cancelled".
