[... guidelines for extension publishing omitted ...] because there is
about zero chance that anything would be included in a 5321bis that
would force it back to Proposed Standard.

Yet, I think something will have to be said about the now common habit of From:
rewriting.  Section 3.9, Mailing Lists and Aliases, still considers only
rewriting of the envelope from.  Reality now differs.

I don't think such changes would imply going back to PS, given the loosely
normative content of that section.
