I agree with Markus
This draft  is only good to test your knowledge of the various mail protocols 
by finding all the errors in this one.

On a first quick reading I discovered 3 errors

1 wrong naming of RFC's
2 non existing entities (SMTP headers???)
3 (RFC2822?) headers changing by non recognising MDA's?? (that means nothing 
less than a non backward compatability)

Who can find more errors ...

AFAIK the same type and idea of proposal as discussed before in
with the same flaws and even from the same group ... HP India.

Now the field is called Pc instead of Ncc.

The author agains completely mixes 2821 and 2822.

Reminds me of some broken handheld (psion?) software in the end 90s.
They sent the Bcc field along for the SMTP server to take care of it.
