Re: [ietf-smtp] Error in RFC 5321 concerning SPF and DKIM

I think any reference to DKIM better belongs to a hypothetical 5322bis.
Whatever it does, it's not related to the envelope.

Makes sense, that's how SPF + DKIM were designed.  SPF for SMTP
+ DNS + Return-Path, DKIM not depending on SMTP for full message
header lines including a From:.

I agree some reference to SPF would make sense (for the purposes
of Dave's erratum though I think removing the sentence in question
is the best solution).

Not mentioning SPF would be odd, after all its "FAIL" feature fixes a
serious 2821-SMTP issue.  It could go into the security considerations.
