I believe the purpose of the two methods is to allow
implementation-dependant schemes for <list-name>s in the former case.

Personally I don't see a great need for what you are suggesting. Both
forms, with regeard to plain users, are intended to be hidden
behind a user interface, where the user would probably have drop-down
boxes of his ldap groups or addressbook lists.

As an alternative, you could put your additional argument in
<list-name>, for instance as a prefix, as in "ldap-group-foo" or

That is, for our 
implementation, algorithmic
construct of the full URLs for external lists, possibly accessed 
diffferently for different
lists, gets more feasible if in addition to Sieve owner and a 
user-friendly list-name, we
also get an indication of what sort of URL to construct.

I understand, but if the user is to define the protocol anyway, but not
the whole URL, would it make it less user-friendly to be defined in the
<list-name> as described above?
