Being stranded is the result of SMTP having achieved its goal of allowing delivery without requiring any prior arrangements. Shouldn't it now be duty bound to bring them out of there?

AFAIK, the only attempt toward that in
- 'DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) Development, Deployment and
   Operations '
   <draft-ietf-dkim-deployment-09.txt> as an Informational RFC

where it mentions a case ``in which the receiving site might wish to deliver problematic mail, rather than redirecting it, but also of course contacting the signing organization, seeking resolution of the problem.''

Do RFCs contain more invitations to get out of the strand?

If you are referring to "stranded" as a result of complexity, this particular DKIM document is probably a good example of keeping them in the "strand."
