We're using an variant of what's in the draft (an earlier version) in our 
client. The details are rather complex, but basically what happens is that 
client uses the alternate representation in order to avoid having to parse 
otherwise deal with Sieve syntax.

yes - sieve parsing is probably too difficult for web applications

Well, I'm not sure I'd go that far, although the whole Javascript environment
is such a nightware you may well be right.

But regardless, the point is why force people to implement another parser in a
hugely overconstained environment when they don't need to?
