No, maybe you confused it with this MUSTard in 4409 (note "unless"):

for a new ISSUE Number. Editor/Monitor, please do a RE:/WAS to
issue one if appropriate.

One of the 4409 authors told me to post an I-D if I want to fix a
bug (missing Resent-* in 8.1) in preparation of a 4409-to-STD move,
see <> + 5098 + 5100.

It's no SMTP bug.  Of course we should check that 2821bis is still
compatible with 4409 (wrt issues like TLDs or incomplete domains).
