AFAICT RFC3030 has not been widely adopted in practice. Why, do you think? Do you think the reason, whatever it is, will hurt the new extension unnecessarily?
I think support for RFC 3030 CHUNKING extension is much more common these days, but I need to double check major SMTP server implementations.

There is really no reason for this proposal to require support for CHUNKING, so it can be refactored to work with DATA (I would not change syntax of the new command though). In general, I find that octet-counted blocks are easier to implement that something like dot-stuffing.
