In addition to my earlier comments, I agree with everything in
Ned's note (the two sets of comments seem to be complementary).
Also, please note:

Without getting into whether or not this is in general a good
idea, I want to
note that the proposal as written is self-contradictory,
making it very
difficult to evaluate. In particular:
- SMTP SUBMISSION
4409 has been obsolete for five years now, implying that the
submitters of this proposal have some reading and other homework
to do. RFC 6409 should be the reference here.
And SUBMIT is in play.
In addition, I'd add to Ned's comment about end to end
encryption the observation that it is particularly important for
webmail and similar models because users or many such services
may have reason to not trust their email service providers (at
one end or the there) with message content.
