+1. I am slowly going through draft-crocker-email-arch, but when I saw John 
bring this up, I thought it had to be a mistake.

I haven't touched the reference in question in over a decade. (There is no URL 
for the document in the draft, but it can be found at 
<>.) For those of you checking your 
chronometers, that means it predates IDNs, much less EAI.

It should not be referenced in a modern architecture document.
