True, the test against the Cc field fails, but when given a list of headers/strings, a logical OR is applied, so matching against To is sufficient for the test to succeed.

Ah, now I see what you're saying. But 3028 consistently talks about "address" as a single test with multiple arguments, not as a collection of single-argument tests, so "the test evaluates to false" is less than ideal phrasing.

3598bis is in the RFC-Editor's queue, isn't it? Too late to change anything substantive. I suppose a minor rephrasing could be done during auth48. Perhaps ", then the :detail doesn't match anything" or something like that. Not terribly important. Change it if you think that's both appropriate and permissible.

Anyone want to second this suggestion?
