it seems unfortunate that this means that a separate port is required
for sieve management. a compatible extension to IMAP would allow sieve
management using the same URI.

That makes the assumption that sieve scripts live only in IMAP servers,
which I don't think we want to do.

not at all :-)

the function contained in this protocol is really very trivial. i
doubt that any implementator using a storage mechanism other than IMAP
would bother creating an implementation rather than just reusing their
preferred protocol at the application level. for example, HTTP is a
well known protocol whose secruity characterics are know well
understood. sieve maintainance using RESTful HTTP would be much
simpler than creating an implementations of this novel protocol.
