Section 10

  Implementations SHOULD take measures to prevent scripts from looping.

Q: Isn't this trivially true because Sieve scripts have no loop command? Perhaps you meant to say "creating mail loops" instead of "looping".

Actually, there is separate text about mail loops:

  The "redirect" command has considerations regarding loop prevention;
  see the command description for recommendations.

I can't remember now why this text is here. Maybe it is just alerting about buggy implementations that might loop due to buffer overflows, etc.?
