This document describes a way to represent Sieve email filtering
language scripts in XML.  Representing Sieves in XML is intended not
as an alternate storage format for Sieve but rather as a means to
facilitate manipulation of scripts using XML tools.

The XML representation also defines additional elements that have no
counterparts in the regular Sieve language.  These elements are
intended for use by graphical user interfaces and provide facilities
for labeling or grouping sections of a script so they can be
displayed more conveniently.  These elements are represented as
specially structured comments in regular Sieve format.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
