I don't think I'm squashing such an idea (standardization is usually
beneficial). I'm more asking, IF we standardize what benefits do we
expect given that many large ISPs do provide much of the feedback (just
not in a standardized format)?

[So that's what that button does.]

Right, and I believe the goal is an optimization that reduces retries that are 
doomed to fail.  The question you could probably answer from your perspective 
is whether or not those retries are a problem for you, either as a sender that 
provides queueing services for customers, or as a receiver that periodically 
temp-fails for resource reasons.  Standardizing the reply increases the 
likelihood that clients will adhere.  But if the current setup isn't a pain 
point for you or others, then that suggests there's not really a problem here 
worth solving.
