as I think you are saying, unchanged after -03, certainly I
didn't somehow sneak it in as a private deal with the RFC Editor
after IESG approval.

I took a quick look to understand the history. The sentence was likely added following a discussion unrelated to DKIM. The context of the mail-related discussions at that time would help the reader understand what the issue was about. I think that it is better to do nothing about the sentence. I'll note that there was a pre-evaluation of RFC 5321 and the sentence was not considered as an issue.
