I honestly don't grasp the resistance.

I am strongly resistant to different reply codes in a multiline reply
for the following reasons:

(i)   Two different reasonable people could interpret the reply differently.

More like 1 in a million. :-)

(ii)  It seems like a confusing hack.

eh, hence why we want to legitimate it.

(iii) The only use-case proposed so far relies on client implementation
      details upon which the server SHOULD NOT rely.

Then why bother with with 45x and 55x in tying to control clients? In reality, you can't rely on that either.

If the client is going to hang up anyway because it is ignoring an 150- to reset a timer, the odds are good you probably don't that mail anyway.

The fact is, it hasn't shown to be a problem. Now is the time to make it OFFICIAL. Who want to wait until 5-10 years?

That said, I respect your opinion you are not wrong, but you not right either with the logistics here. :-)
