 I think both Ned and Dave mentioned the irritation that can arise from a

 ietf-smtp(_at_)ietf(_dot_)org is the wrong address).

It's ietf-smtp(_at_)imc(_dot_)org(_dot_)

  One advantage of a sync point
 after the message envelope is that the client can decide not to proceed if
 a subset of the recipients are rejected; this doesn't work if the envelope
 and data are pipelined. (It is also limited by how strongly the server can
 verify addresses.) What do you think of having a NOPARTFAIL parameter to
 the MAIL command, which means that the client is asking the server to
 reject the message data if any of the recipients are rejected - "no
 partial failure".

Perhaps "NOBADRCPT" or my earlier suggestion of "ABORTONBADRCPT".
