[sieve] Question about draft-ietf-sieve-external-lists-02

2010-07-28 05:47:29

I just gave the latest specification (ietf-02) of the extlists extension a quick read. The last version I read was ietf-00 and since then the :list argument for the various test commands was changed into an actual generic match type. This is, I think, a very good idea. However, the document does not describe how this new match type interacts with a specified comparator. For example, when I remember correctly, the LDAP schema internally defines how, i.e. with what collation, attribute values are to be matched. So, will the specified comparator be ignored for LDAP URIs or will it trigger an error? How about other list/db/URI types? What to do in situations where specifying an explicit comparator is inappropriate? I think this is an important issue that should be adressed in the specification.
