Yeah, so that should work. I re-read RFC5321 4.x about Trace Information and
it looks like one could just register an additional trace field clause to
contain the details (quarantined or held for moderation, and maybe the reason
in a comment, etc.).
I'm glad this conversation led me to that discovery. It means the storage of
the client IP in a comment, as RFC5321 says to do, might be supplanted by
something a little more sensible.
Of course, in both cases, adoption might be a bit of a long shot.
