Hi Peter,
Thank you for the review.

Overall this is a fine document and a creative re-use of existing Sieve

I found a few of the sentences a bit difficult to parse, but I also
didn't find an easy way to rephrase them, so feel free to ignore this
comment. :)


The introduction references the last paragraph of the security
considerations, but as far as I can see that paragraph doesn't have
anything to do with security and I think it would make more sense to
include this text in the introduction...

  Finally, users of any auto-reply mechanism should really think about
  whether automatic replies are necessary, and at what interval they
  make sense when they are.  Email is not Instant Messaging, and
  senders generally expect that replies might take a while.  Consider
  whether it's truly important to tell people that you'll read their
  mail in an hour or so, or whether that can just be taken as how email
  works.  There are times when this makes sense, but let's not use it
  to exacerbate information overload.

Works for me.

This document normatively references several other I-Ds. Does the WG
have any concerns that the referenced I-Ds will change materially? It
seems perhaps safer to advance the referenced I-Ds first, just in case.

The document references 3 other drafts. One of them is still being
worked on (Sieve external list), the other 2 are already in IESG review.
So far the proposed changes to Seive external list don't invalidate

OK, good. I'll monitor those discussions just to be sure.
