How come this never got adoption?  It comes up from time to time in "We

because nobody else does it?

What sort of smtp clients /senders of email are the target market for this?

Most of the obvious users I can think of (send lots of similar email on an 
ongoing fashion, care deeply enough about bounce management to really want to 
track which recipients are bouncing, technically competent enough to both 
implement and make good use of PRDR) don’t tend to batch and blast, rather they 
tend to send unique emails to each recipient.

(I’m sure it’s been discussed before, but I don’t recall what the answer was 
and there’s no mention of it in the draft.)
