RFC 5230 is an application of RFC 3834.  There is no reference

that should be fixed, adding an RFC 3834 reference in 4.5.5 (?)
I would not call that a "fix".
Forwarding mail from server scripts often results in messages 
transferred with an empty MAIL FROM, RFCs notwithstanding.

Forwarders are unrelated to RFC 3834 "auto-replies" by mailbots,

Some even hypothesize a BCP candidature for such "modernism"...

I have never heard of that idea, and don't think that it is good,
but of course adding "or BCP" to "standards-track" would be okay
in 4.5.5.
