I'll skip commenting about this to get back to the issue at hand.

The question is whether to retain the current language, replace it, or
drop it.

Given the problems with the existing text, I am not understanding your
basis for suggesting its retention.

The only way I can think of to determine what to do about the current language is through an erratum. The Application Area Director rejected Erratum #4405 because "this is a change request, not an errata report".

I reviewed what was published as RFC 5321 twice. The mailing list archive will show that I was wrong about that sentence and that I did not raise an issue about it. The YAM mailing archive will show that I had another opportunity to raise an issue but I did not do so. If I recall correctly I did not consider the inclusion of that sentence as a significant issue.

I could have suggested dropping the sentence. It did not seem worthwhile to argue about the sentence given that the erratum was rejected.
