The IETF's interest is determined by its participants. Let's not get
carried away by analogies.
The current technology is heavily biased. It gives an advantage to
those considered "too big to block" where current identification
methods do not allow the defense of one's
reputation. Such a situation keeps everyone stuck with the noise
or turning to a better system. :^(
It's unlikely that it can be changed by restating every now and then

looking into the caveats.
By most definitions, it is not spam when you wish to receive a
buddy's message. I guess you are saying that you are not happy with
all of their messages. There is no protocol that can determine what
makes you happy. :^)
No, I was saying that accounts get compromised. I thought that RFC
5514 would be able to determine what makes me happy. :-)
