I'm still unconvinced.  I haven't seen any evidence to support this at all.

hmmm,  unless I mis-read people's input, many people contributing to the 
thread recognized there are issues and most have indicated a note that a IETF 
document for greylisting would be a good thing.

I believe you cited an interest in an SMTP extension for a retry hint.

I mentioned how it could be done, but also expressed concern that it might not 
be worth the trouble... also I said that greylisting wasn't the reason for such 
an extension.

Personally I think writing up an RFC on greylisting will only dilute its 
effectiveness as a spam countermeasure.
